Begoña Lafuente lives and works as an artist near the Northern sea in The Netherlands. Born, raised and
educated in Spain she moved to Alkmaar, North Holland, in 2009 with her husband and two
Her career began after graduating from The Fine Art University in Madrid in 1992, after which she became a graphic designer and illustrator for multiple corporal identity, branding, and
technology companies. Nowadays She is a multidisciplinary artist who enjoys the process of
experimenting with media and different techniques (photography, scannographies,
monoprints). Her most predominant field is, however, painting, where her acrylics and inks
often involve collages.
She has currently been focused in creating monoprints, which allows her to investigate and apply
her professional background as an artist and designer. The beauty of this process lies on its
spontaneity when combining photography, digital, printmaking, painting, collage and drawing techniques.
Her choices involve daily matters, but you will also find that her portfolio is inspired by the
recognizable shapes of history’s art masterminds. Her art, therefore, expresses how easily she adapts between artistic styles (abstract, urban life, portraits, nature). Begoña, moreover, creates an
emotional and visual tension through use of “Themed Contrast”, “Opposite Colour Balance”,
and “Biological vs Geometric Shapes”; themes that represent a constantly shifting nature.
The artist often participates in local and international art fairs and exhibitions and her work can be found
in private collections across Europe (France, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, United
Kingdom), and in The United States of America.
