Born in Zaragoza. Graduated in Business Administration with a postgraduate degree in Foreign Trade from Sheffield Hallam University and dedicated to marketing and product development for twenty years until I turn my career. Daughter of the watercolor artist Amparo Morán Rivas (Salamanca 1927 – Zaragoza 2008). With artistic training in different centers of Madrid. Mother of two suns. Daughter, sister, wife and friend. Dedicated to drawing, painting and illustration. I love the art that moves and I would love to transcend the role and make something move inside who contemplates it. I enjoy doing things very much even if they leave my personal project. I like to feel those lives as part of my work and share the illusion that these works contain.
This is the proposal with which Eva González Morán has won the Contest to illustrate the cover of the II National Narrative Short Brief Villa of Madrid, and titled “Cuéntame Madrid”:
“Cuéntame Madrid”, Marker / paper, 21 x 14.8 cm.
Madrid contains more than three million lives that surely deserve to be counted, with their entanglements, their crosses, their coincidences. I marvel that a city so immense you almost always find a common acquaintance with your interlocutor. Thousands of stories of love, disappointment, loyalty, political ruse, tolerance and marginalization. Thousands of laps start in a strange country, in a strange city that welcomes, because it is a giant current that drag fish of five oceans. Inspiration to not get bored.
