A young Spanish artist Nuria Riaza has chosen a unique technique for creating her paintings. The girl draws surreal works with an ordinary ballpoint pen, complementing them with filigree embroidery thread. She is the only artist in the world who creates paintings in this way and you definitely need to get acquainted with them.

Nuria started drawing seriously quite late – at the age of 16 and for a long time could not find her own technique. Having tried oil, watercolors, pastels and even markers, at the age of 21, the artist chose a blue ballpoint pen for herself.

Sometimes Nuria lacks the expressiveness of ink to convey her idea, and then the girl boldly adds embroidery to the composition. The artist uses gold, silver, blue and scarlet silk threads to emphasize individual details of the work.

The artist admits that she sometimes uses other techniques, but this happens extremely rarely and only on a whim – the pen and threads allow her to realize any ideas without exception. Nuria believes that pens are universal tools that convey thoughts in the form of texts, symbols and images.

Riaza is absolutely serious about the fact that drawing with pens has a therapeutic effect. At a minimum, they provide an opportunity to distract from problems and calm your nerves. This is akin to meditation and the creation of mandalas, says Nuria.
