Ana Escobar has a background in fine art, having earned her bachelor's and her MA in Photography at London College Of Communication, University of the Arts, London in 2016.
She was born in Huelva, Spain in 1975. She works predominantly with the medium of photography, including multi-media installations and live performance.
Her main theme is the in-between space the artist inhabits, which is explored through the use of archetypes, alchemy and mythologies in a psychoanalytical Jungian tradition.
