Mariya Alipieva is a multidisciplinary artist born in Bulgaria in 1981, living and working in Spain since 2003. After graduating with a degree in Animation at Art College Sofia (Bulgaria), she moved to Mallorca to study a Higher Level Education Cycle in Artistic Ceramics at Art and Design High School of Palma de Mallorca. She also holds a BA in Fine Arts and an MA in Artistic Production and Research from the University of Barcelona.

Her projects explore the intimate relationship between individuals and their environment. Her artistic production delves into the elements that surround us and how we shape ourselves to conform to the standards imposed by contemporary society. Through her work, she invites the public to reflect on the acts and rituals ingrained in the first-world lifestyle, which are often closely related to constant concern for physical appearance and social status.
