LOVE STORY by Anna Ruiz
Anna Ruiz (b. Sant Vicenç de Castellet, 1983) was born and raised in Catalonia. In 2001 she moved to London, the city she loved, to embark on a creative journey that was just beginning. While there she opened her studio for design and illustration. She worked for stores like Topshop, Asos or Miss Selfridge and was in charge of prints for the fashion designer Jonathan Saunders. She has always collaborated on her partner Cristian Zuzunaga’s projects and, after returning to her technical education and experimenting with personal projects in the past few years, she has been able to find her true artistic voice in linocuts. It is an old and slow technique that transports us back to a different era when people had time to reflect on the evolution of their work, and even on life itself.
Whether professional or emotional, we’ve all experienced or will experience a LOVE STORY at some point in our lives. Because love is what moves us, in one way or another. And like all stories it will have a beginning, a crux and an end.
