Coco Capitán was born in Seville, Spain in 1992. Today, based in London, she completed her MA Master of Fine Arts with honors in the field of Photography at the Royal College of Art, London, in 2016. Her art practice straddles the fine art and commercial art worlds and includes photography, painting, and prose.
She has produced editorial and commercial collaborations with Gucci, Paco Rabanne, Maison Margiela, and her work has appeared in magazines including the New York Times Magazine, Dazed, M Le Monde, Document Journal, and Vogue.
Capitán’s photographs and paintings adopt an innate understanding of form; atypical color scheme and composition, while her signature-handwritten aphorisms make sincere statements culturally relevant to the times we live in today. Between the installations that reveal her contemporary interpretation of Pop Art to her imagination-based paintings and text-based work that negotiate her emotions in a witty manner, Capitán embodies an acute sensitivity through her photographs being made with an eye for what the camera is able offer, rather than what it is able to shoot.
