Angela de la Cruz

Angela de la Cruz, Tight (Red/ Pink), 2013

Beneath the mangled surfaces, twisted shapes and searing colours of Angela de la Cruz’s paintings is a rollicking sense of humour, something the 55-year-old Spanish artist believes is integral to survival – and living in London. A wheelchair user since a stroke in 2005 – she works remotely with a team of six assistants to realise her wondrous visions – Angela’s ascent has not been without its complications. But for the La Coruña-born, Slade-educated artist, a love of slapstick, an insatiable curiosity and regular double shots of espresso are the stuff creative ingenuity is made of.
