Biography

She lives and work in Gran Canaria, Spain.

Bachelor of Fine Arts from La Laguna University in Tenerife (Spain). Master degree in Artistic Production, Universidad Politécnica of Valencia (Spain).

Her work revolves around the problems of the modern food industry, which are perpetuated in an environment in which we have lost contact with the origins, the natural environment and the origin of our food. Her speech focuses on the new models of food production in a system dictated by economic interests and speculation with natural resources. And it has been reinforced when she suffered a health problem that forced her to change her eating habits.

With a career of several years of research in this field, Luna tries to deepen this discourse to investigate the contemporary reality of the food industry and its contradictions.
