About the artist:
Bio: (Mexico City, 1987) Regina Jean, known as Spika, is a Mexican artist who studied at the Universidad de las Americas in Puebla. As she was completing her thesis in religion and celebrities, Regina realized that “portrait” has potential to explore further. After finishing her Bachelor of Fine Arts, Regina began to consider different subjects around the portrait. Her most representative collection is “Cosmogonia," which means the different perspectives every being has of their universe. In this collection, Regina works with the portraits of family members and friends by merging them with nebulas, capturing the essence of the person. Through this experimentation, she created a new series called "Femmes Fatales" that are portraits of artists of the 50s each submerged into a nebulae. Regina has participated in more than 30 exhibitions around the Mexican Republic, United States and Italy.
