Lucia Duque was born in the cradle of a family of Colombian artists. Due to the violent circumstances of the country, her family moved to Malaga, Spain when she was only four years old.
She grew up between brushes and visits to museums where through them she learned the importance of art in society and the importance of sincerity in painting, especially the value of expressing social injustices. That is what has marked her heart the most and what moves her to paint.
Although she studied muralism at La Palma Art School in Madrid, (Spain) she considers that her learning has happened throughout her life, through travel and experiences, getting to know the work of other painters, etc.
During the last few years, Lucia has presented her paintings in exhibition halls and national museums (Malaga, Seville, Madrid, Bilbao, Barcelona). Her works can be found in private collections in the United States and Europe. She’s also organized collective exhibitions for social issues like “United for Freedom” against sex trafficking.
With the recent refugee crisis, Lucia felt challenged to visit the island of Lesbos in Greece. That experience impacted her deeply and can be seen in her current works.
Her newest collection “Stealth in the Mist” is just a glimpse of all these thoughts that have been embedded deep inside of her for years. They are her most intimate and personal paintings lived out in silence. In them she expresses her experiences as a mother, a woman and an immigrant.
