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 primarily in professional workshops. 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.”

EmPoderArte is an international association of women artists in which we develop themes related to gender artistic research and its social implications.
Our goals are the visibility of women artists, the search for equality between men and women and the fight against sexist violence.We organize the thematic emphasis of our exhibitions upon these pillars.
The diversity of our projects responds to our identities as women artists. Our miscegenous hybridizations, multicultural and multidisciplinary art forms, come together to produce artistic projects, which are socially significant and close to our own areas of interest.
