Laura Muñoz Estellés
Artist & Textile and Surface pattern designer
I'm a visual artist and textile designer who creates under the name Ninola.
My work is the result of a multidisciplinary learning process through fashion, fine arts and textiles and it is mainly focused on handmade illustration and pattern design applied to different products and surfaces. I love making dazzling art with my paintbrush and watercolors, and designing colorful patterns to make common things more beautiful.
Ninola means to create by revealing the potential of a joyful spirit, by setting free the forgotten child that lies within all of us, honestly and without prejudices, figuring out new ways of expression, in a constant search for the non-existent yet, for the unexpected and surprising, the emotion of playing and enjoyment, enthusiasm, the might of colors and the naïve curiosity of innocence.
Patience, care, reflection, love for the detail, expertise are present in everything I do. I praise the spirit of the artisans, their workshops, the arts & crafts, handmade, the vernacular wisdom. By reinterpreting ancient techniques and know-hows and suiting them to modernity, the inherited beauty, where we all depart from, is protected.
As an artist, I love painting and illustrating, playing and experiencing with textures and shades, releasing her hand in an intuitive and boundless way. Thus the rivers of watercolors and inks are my most beloved way of expression, their randomness and inaccuracy, the inherent element of luck and surprise, making each work unrepeatable, each one a spontaneous order… Where colors flow.
I work closely with you to full fill your design needs, from textiles for fashion to wallpaper for home decor. Whether you need to create, a prints collection completely, a bespoke pattern design or you are looking for unique watercolors, I’m confident that you will be happy with the results.
