I´m a professional artist who loves her work and knowing about contemporary art. I studied Art at Complutense University of Madrid and FIT in NYC. I've also won many art awards, such as the Wellington Foundation, FFP, Women and Society... I show my work in Spain, England, the United States, France, and Brazil. I love meeting people, and learning about other artists work.

Where you'll be

We’ll be in the beautiful Salesas neighborhood, a centric area of Madrid, trendy, chic and bohemian, renowned for its contemporary art galleries. There is plenty to see, all of them are high standard and we will visit more or less depending on how you feel. My studio is in the close and typical Chamberí quarter and I´ll love to show you my work and have a relaxed chat while having a drink and a snack.

Really wonderful experience! María was so lovely and welcoming. She has such a passion for this space, it’s fun to experience contemporary art through her eyes. The majority of galleries I would have never found by myself. Some truly felt hidden. There was a nice variety of art/gallery type as well. Ending the tour at María’s studio was so fun. Great way to meet new people in Madrid and see a different side of the city.

This was a great tour. Maria was very nice and welcoming. She took us to art galleries I would probably not know were there if I hadn't taken the tour. She offered a good perspective on the works. She also showed us her own work and provided food and drinks at the end of the walk. I had a great time!

Maria is a smart, charming, full of knowledge and truly passionate about art. She takes to places no tourist will find on his own, all of them with marvelous exhibitions, and ends the tour at her own studio - where you'll learn she's quite an amazing artist her self. I definitely recommend it - cause it was probably the best experience I've ever booked.
