Maria Almena is a Spanish London-based creative director, art curator and a multimedia artist. Co-founder of the creative studio, Kimatica www.kimatica.net, as well as co-founder of the charitable organisation Art in Flux http://www.artinfluxlondon.com/.
Maria's practice is exploring concepts of human consciousness and perception, making those transcendental ideas accessible to a modern audience, to inspire reconnection with magical thinking and the ethereal world. Fascinated by the juxtaposition of the physical and spiritual, the virtual and real spaces, and the scientific and artistic concepts. She enjoys playing with perception aiming to transport the viewer into new worlds, using experimental technologies as magical tools that help to dramatise the transition between different states of being and highlighting the importance of the journey in itself.
With Kimatica she has been commissioned by British council, Tate Museum, Instagram, Barbican centre, Veuve Clicquot and many Light and Art festivals like Lightwaves, Wilderness and Jerusalem festivals. With Flux she has participated in projects supported by Arts Council England and Computers Arts Society, as well as exhibiting at V&A Museum, Royal College of Art amongst many others.
