Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Magdalena Suranyi is an artist currently based in London where she completed a degree in Fine Arts at Chelsea College of Art and Design. Her persisted choice in medium has been figurative large-scaled drawings and paintings, creating a natural link between her political tendencies and the development of murals or (ideally) public art.
She encourages a deliberate “excess,” the uncomfortable use and abuse of socially charged death imagery. Her concern with human rights, gender roles and archtypical imagery that accost deep-seated stereotypes and learned behaviors has been described as consistent and profound.
These confrontational visuals work on a number of levels as she hopes to strike a balance between topical, specific historical references and a kind of inconclusive universality. The nature of the compositions are defined and largely controlled by her merged interests in history, psychology as well as sociological studies.
