Within the Artist-in-Residence Program, CCA is delighted to host artist Marta Troya Gracia (1995 in Malaga, Spain). Marta Troya is a Spanish visual artist born in 1995. She studied Fine Art and History of Art at Kingston School of Art (London) and obtained a scholarship to study Sculpture for six months in the Central Academy of Fine Arts (Beijing, China). In 2018, she graduated from the Royal College of Art, where she did a Masters in Painting. Marta combines age-old craft skills with contemporary techniques and subjects. The artist takes delight in working with her hands and has spent extended periods of time learning and creating alongside artisans and craftspeople from across the world. Marta’s work is partly focused on redeeming, respecting and honoring artisan work and indigenous people’s knowledge. She currently lives and works in Malaga and will be staying in Studio Yellow during December 2023.
