Born in Barcelona, Spain, her first steps in art were with her father José Mª Barba Albiñana,an excellent artist in enamel reproductions of a large majority of the most renowned painters of history, encompassing all styles: Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, Gothic, Romanticism, Realism, Cubism, Impressionism, Expressionism, etc . He was also a well-known jeweler as he was jeweler studies and profession.
Luisa worked with her father for several years and then spent some years designing and selling jewelry.
She returned later to what she had always liked, painting. Since the age of ten she began taking lessons from the painter Odile Kurz at the Betania-Patmos foundation, and at fourteen she began working with her father in the enamel reproductions technique combining studies and work.
Art, beauty and to be able to reflect it, to shape it in some way, is her way of expression.
She currently shares a painting studio with her sister Angela Barba who is also a painter.
She is also dedicated to interior and exterior decoration.
luisabarba.com is a space in the network where the beauty of art, the elegance and the deep spirituality of the human being are prioritized.
My passion for painting comes from the relationship I had as a teenager making enamel reproductions of many of the painters of history.
Those who have influenced me most are some painters of the Italian Renaissance for their beauty, clarity, expressiveness and their help to change society. Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Rafael…
Goya has also been a great influence as it had a stroke that came from the soul and Salvador Dali whose innate inspiration I admire has done what he wanted with excellent results. What I feel for moments and to be able to capture it with passion is my beginning and my goal.
I love passion, beauty and the art.
