Profile
Artist

Eulàlia Grau (Terrassa 1946), also known simply as Eulàlia, began to study Fine Art in Barcelona but abandoned it in favour of cinema studies at the Sala Aixelà under teachers such as Pere Portabella and Alexandre Cirici, and at the Eina School where she met Albert Ràfols-Casamada and Josep Maria Carandell. In Milan she worked at the design studio Olivetti. Most of her work was done during the seventies and early eighties. After a short stay in Germany in the mid-eighties, she moved to Japan and China where she would remain until the late nineties, when she moved back to Barcelona and resumed her artistic career. In 2013, MACBA presented an exhibition focused on her most critical works. In her work, Eulàlia uses photographs from the media, which she re-contextualises by establishing a dialogue between them, bringing out some very critical social messages.
