Sara Herranz

8 May 2024 – 14 June 2024

Sara Herranz, a native of Tenerife, studied Audiovisual Communication in Santiago de Compostela to later continue her path in Madrid. There she specialized in television production and currently she develops her career in a double role, as a writer and visual artist. This places her in a unique creative space that has left her mark on the universe of graphic novels and illustration.

Suggestive, mysterious and reflective, Sara delves into the depths of the most existentialist neo-noir. Its protagonists, nonconformists by nature, together with their expressive and delicate lines and messages full of irony, form the common thread of a story that combines narrative and visual force.

She is the author of the books Everything I never told you I keep here ( Lunwerg, 2015) with more than 25,000 copies sold and The wrong person (Lunwerg, 2017) with 10,000 copies on the market. For that same label, he has published the illustrated version of The broken woman by Simone de Beauvoir (2020) and the essay The devil is a woman(2021) by the writer Elena Gallén.

Her illustrations have been on the cover of international books (Penguin Random House Teen) and her latest cover for the Ullstein Buchverlage publishing house is the German version of Sally Rooney’s book Beautiful World, Where are You.

Beyond her literary success, prestigious brands such as Chanel, Samsung, Gucci, Vogue, Joyerías Juárez, Cruz Roja and the Novartis Foundation have trusted Sara to illustrate their campaigns. Her talent for capturing the essence of profound and current themes makes her a sought-after collaborator in the world of illustration.

This exhibition establishes a dialogue between the literature of the French philosopher and novelist, Simone de Beauvoir (Paris, 1908-1986) and the art of the illustrator Sara Herranz. In this way, a series of text fragments extracted from the literary work “The Broken Woman”, by Beauvoir, will be exhibited alongside works by the Tenerife illustrator, with unique editions created for the gallery. A duo that combines word and image to open like a book before the viewer and that hosts, for the first time in the city, an exhibition by the renowned illustrator.
