Maider López was born in 1975 in San Sebastian, Spain where she lives and works. She graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts at Bilbao (1998) and received an MFA from Chelsea College of Art and Design, London (1999). López enjoys creating interventions in spaces, situations and architecture. Her works often involve the active participation of the viewer and can take the unprepared by surprise as an aspect of a familiar space mischievously highlighted or altered.
