Born in Madrid.

Lives and works in Málaga.

Master Technician of Plastic Arts and Design in Illustration, Madrid.

Academic studies at the Faculty of Philosophy in Madrid.

Parallel to her formative studies, she developed her artistic skills in professional workshops, including that of the abstract artist and photographer Ángel Úbeda, with whom she perfected her critical eye collaborating with him in different projects. After several years during which she worked at graphic design, she expanded her artistic skills with various workshops at the Royal College of Art in London.

"Projections of a startled reality and subversion of rationality", a description found in the monograph "Yesterday’s Truth is Today’s Let-down" that Antonio Leyva devoted to the studio of her work. The career of Helena Revuelta, with relatively already promising and significant public appearances (Madrid, Miami, New York...) confirms the uniqueness of her language, radically alien to the current aesthetic purisms and norms that make a great part of our contemporary art homogeneous and repetitive.

Her personal aesthetic experience, in which contradiction and vehemence team up to expose the hermetic and often inaccessible darkness in which the distortions singling out feelings take refuge, is firmly anchored to a vague but very decisive and eloquent poetic spirit in conflict with media and technological arrogance.”
