Lidia Cao

Lidia Cao is an artist from Galicia, Spain. From a young age, Lidia was interested in drawing, particularly the study of human figures and portraiture. Her paintings mainly feature women. Despite their delicate expression, they exude great strength, fortitude, and tenacity, which Lidia defines as feminism.

“I feel at ease drawing female portraits. They were always a source of inspiration. For me, the female figure is synonymous with life. With my compositions, I hope to tell a story about each of them.” – Lidia Cao.

Every dreamlike composition is created with monochromatic palettes and clean lines that, while decorative, constitute a semiotic system of expression. Lidia’s heroines are distinct with each painting paying homage to their respective stories, acting as a psychological profile with thinly veiled dramaturgy.
