Ana Beltrán Porcar is one of those people you meet and to whom you are instantly drawn. Her love of art is palpable.
In addition to traditional gallery exhibitions, Ana collaborates with musicians to create symbiotic artistic concerts held in places of historical and cultural significance. Her latest "Veu la Música, Sent el Color" was held in the majestic Sala Alfons el Magnànim in Valencia, Spain. As her friends perform, she paints thereby creating a very organic event. By the end of the musical performance, Ana has completed a large scale painting. At these events, she is both artist and entertainer.
As a recipient of the prestigious PROMOE grant, Ana was able to study fine arts at UABC (universidad Autónoma de Baja California) in Mexicali, Mexico. During this time, she completed the featured body of work Retratos de Mexicali | Mexicali Portraits. The city, as its name implies, is on the border of Mexico and California and is home to people from various cultural backgrounds. While there, she painted the daily life of its residents. Her work captures the individuality, humanity, and essence of each person.
If you are in or near Tijuana, Mexico, be sure to visit the art festival Entijuanarte. Some of Ana's latest works will be on display from October 7th - 9th. In the meantime, please enjoy Retratos de Mexicali | Mexicali Portraits.
