Elsa Guerra was born in Barcelona and lived there until she was 21 years old where she studied Marketing and Visual Merchandise. She then moved to Manresa, where she worked as a scenography painter as well as for theatres, movies and advertisement. The next stage of her artistic career was to work for the clothing brand Desigual, both as an artist and as a manager, for which she was required to travel around the world for six years. She still finds inspiration from that nowadays.
She is currently involved in a residency project called Konvent, located in an old convent in Cal Rosal, Berga, Catalonia, that was converted into a cultural centre and artistic residency. At the same time she is allocating time to her own artistic career.
