For­mi­da­ble. What was your first cre­ative drive?

F. Inspi­ra­tional artists?

N. Sonia Delaunay, Eduardo Chillida, Andy Glodsworthy, Edward Gorey, Johnny Cash…

F. How would you define your work?

N. My wok reaches my audience through means other than words, and that is why I don’t like to use words to describe my work.

F. What’s in your playlist?

N. I don’t have playlists. I keep all my music in a huge folder in no particular order and I just shuffle.

F. What film is your your life like?

N. It’s like La vita è bella by Roberto Benigni.

N. I don’t quite remember, but I’m a huge fan of Woody Allen.

F. How is a day in the life of Nuria Mora?

N. I like to improvise everyday, I spent lots of tome painting and planning my work. Also I’m a family person so I spent time with my parents.

F. Best and worst night out?

N. Best night is a not to hot, nor too chilly, summer night painting out in the street. Worst night, is a night in the police station.

F. What do you love and hate about Madrid?

N. I love how  seedy it is. And I hate all the yellow buildings, it’s all very yellowish later.

F. Our motto is “A life less ordi­nary”, what makes life less ordinary?

N. As Robert Filliou said, art makes life more interesting than art.
