Ánxela Meilán is a self-taught painter born in A Coruña, Galicia (Spain). She learned a lot from her father, who was also a painter and she studied in unofficial centers. Ánxela thinks that painting is a feeling and that it cannot be taught in any school. Paul Klee said: “And to work my way out of my ruins, I had to fly. And I flew.”
Ánxela has been painting and exhibiting for more than twenty-five years. She has exhibited in various spaces and galleries across Spain and at art fairs in Italy and the Netherlands. Her work appears in official organizations and in private collections. She has illustrated books, painted a mural and taught in her studio and in schools in Galicia. Ánxela was also the director of an art gallery in A Coruña.
She works in oil, acrylic, watercolor, and collage, usually using mixed media.
