Veronica Mar (b. 1979, Granada) is a Spanish artist and designer, currently based in Madrid. Having earned a BA in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona in 2005 and a BA in Interior Design at Eina School in 2004, Mar has been exhibiting her designs since 2007 in notable design galleries such as Rossana Orlandi (Milan), Les Ateliers Courbet (NYC & Miami), Mint (London), and The Wolfsonian Museum in Miami.
Mar's artistic practice focuses on the creation of abstract sculptures and sculptural furnishings, which represent the essence of nature and the soul through a minimum material presence. This forms a delicate intimacy between the piece and the viewer, where the immaterial emptiness transmits different emotions adapted to each sculpture and the context in which it is exhibited. Her work is based on minimal and organic lines that recall constant movement and regeneration, while subtly playing with texture, color, and the ever-changing reflections caused by light. This balance of both the seen and the unseen is fundamental to her work, as the dualities and rhythms of the natural world inspire her pieces. Mar purposely wants her works of art and design to feel like physical expressions of calligraphy, focusing on achieving purity, beauty, and functionality. This interaction is meant to create a space of personal reflection and tranquility, ultimately leading to a new awareness of the self within the natural world.
Since 2014, Veronica Mar has exhibited at art fairs and galleries in London, Shanghai, Barcelona, Madrid, Marbella, and Milan, as well as created pieces for private and public collections. The artist has received several international design awards, such as the first prize in the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation Award (2015), leading to her participation in a Wolfsonian Museum exhibition. Mar has also been the recipient of several grants, from institutions such as the Spanish Royal Academy in Rome, and the Swatch Art Peace Hotel in Shanghai.
