Concha, the 87-year-old artist who sweeps Instagram

Concha, the 87-year-old artist who sweeps Instagram

"I am an 87 year old lady. I like to paint with the Paint program. And above all, to be with my family and with my friends." This is how Concha García Zaera is described, @conchagzaera, in his biography of Instagram, the digital artist who has been triumphing in this social network for some days, multiplying his followers by one hundred in just two days.

He acknowledges that he has liked to paint his whole life and that in some art classes for adults he learned to paint with oil, until in 2006 his children gave him a computer and he knew what would be his favorite support, the program Paint from his Windows 7. Concha confesses that he began by making simple drawings and over time he was complicating them more, adding shadows, details and perspectives.

As we have seen in the 16 images he has shared so far, his most recurring themes are landscapes and deserted urban scenes (from Santorini to China, passing through Valencia), as well as details such as a glass or a goldfinch and in each work It can take between two weeks and a month, to achieve results that speak for themselves and that can be admired in your Instagram account.
