About

“Painting is my job and color my ally.  My creations claim beauty as a visual experience. I believe when we experience beauty there is relief.”

Claudia Valsells

Clàudia is an artist who specializes in color.
A multidisciplinary creator, she discovered painting through mural painting. Based on her reflections as an artist and her experience in trend prediction and mural painting in interior design and architecture, she brings to all her work a distinctive, harmonious, rhythmic and sensitive approach, with color as a primary tool.
Aware of the emotional impact of color and its infinite wealth of nuances, she develops and defines color ranges and color harmonies, abstracting color from matter and any other artifice and seeking in the white of the canvas her only ally. A self-taught painter, in 1992 she went to study mural painting at the Institut Supérieur de Peinture Van Der Kelen et Logelain in Brussels, Belgium. On her return from Brussels, she worked on commissions and for architects, on projects of different scales.
Soon she founded her own company, under the name of ‘arts&claus’, specializing in painting and color applied to architecture and interior design. For 20 years she worked on projects in Spain and abroad. Her role was to convey the value of color and its texture in the decoration of interior spaces working closely with professionals in the fields of art, design, and architecture.
She also produced and edited two color cards of her own, with more than 200 references, which have been used as color communication tools by Spain’s best architects. Currently she combines her activity as an artist with colour consulting and colour prescription in the areas of interior design and architecture.
