Paloma Tendero is a visual artist, born in Spain. She holds a Master’s in Photography at London College of Communication, London. Previous to that, she graduated with BA Fine Arts at Complutense University, Madrid. Through photography and sculpture she analysed the body beyond it physical structure; understanding how our genetic and biological characteristics remain outside of our control, rendering the body vulnerable to an unrequested destiny.
Since 2010, she has been exhibiting and collaborating with different artists and projects, participating in health and well being through the arts programmes as well as making projects as Artist in Residence at Kenthis Town Health Centre, London in 2017 and Kultur Kontack, Vienna in 2018.
