Biography

Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of San Carlos, UPV, Valencia, Spain.
Lives and works in Madrid.

Awarded with the Gold Medal at the BMW National Painting Prize 2011 for the work Infinito II.
"An expression of color and a set of forms that articulate an expressionist abstraction of great fluidity and freshness. Light, gestures, make up a non-referential, balanced and harmonious image of an incontestable strength".

Her career begins since her studies, standing out very soon at the circuit of national painting awards. The young artist, receives numerous recognitions and awards such as the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Valencia or the  Senyera to the Arts of the City of Valencia, both in 2009. Among her most recent achievements is the First Prize Reina Sofía Award for Painting and Sculpture 2016. At the same time, she enjoys working with permanent installations, murals and specific internventions

In 2012 the artist receives the scholarship of Residence Casa de Velázquez as Artist Member of the Académie de France à Madrid. Gamon is, to date, the youngest intern in the history of the prestigious French institution dedicated to scientific and artistic research. In recognition of her project Polvo de Estrellas, her scholarship was  exceptionally extended in renewal for a second year (2013-14), where she combines her inquisitiveness with in-person installations such as AURA, an Audio-Interactive Project in collaboration with the composer and mathematician Carmine E. Cella. Presented in spring 2014 in the Auditorium of the National Museum of Art Reina Sofia in Madrid.

She also has participated in the scientific-artistic Residence know with the name of The Arctic Circle as guest in the programme of a boat expedition to the North Pole.
