Inés Batlló is a multimedia artist who utilizes painting, drawing, sculpture and digital art. She’s known for her unique encaustic style, wherein she uses beeswax and tree resin to preserve her paintings. Her use of this technique reinforces the intent to preserve knowledge and wisdom through her art. Originally from Barcelona, Batlló moved to Austin to study digital art 25 years ago. Now she aims to bridge the two cities and has developed a residency for Austin artists to travel to Spain.
