Mercè Sebastià was born in Barcelona one November 22.
If she had heard her grandfather playing the piano perhaps she would have studied music. But instead she remembers him painting, with great affection, in his office on C/Mallorca.
She has held on to the memory from a very young age of the smell of oil and turpentine and the light that came through the gaps of the blinds to fill and paint the space around her.
Years later she would become a student of Joan Hernández Pijuan at the Faculty of Belles Arts Sant Jordi at the University of Barcelona.
She specialised in painting.
She has held various exhibitions and has been nominated on numerous occasions for awards such as the “Premi de Dibuix Joan Miró”, the “Biennal de Barcelona” and most recently the “Premi de Pintura Torres Garcia- Ciutat de Mataró”.
Blues and greens have been a constant element in her work.
Curretnly she resides and has her studio in Catalunya, at Baix Empordà.
Her realm is the Mediterranean.

Mercè Sebastià va néixer a Barcelona un 22 de novembre.
Si hagués sentit al seu avi tocar el piano potser hauria estudiat música. Però, el recorda pintant, per afecció, en el seu despatx del carrer Mallorca.
Des de molt petita conserva en la memòria aquella olor d’oli i trementina i la llum que, filtrada a través de les lames de les persianes, omplien i dibuixaven l’espai.
Anys més tard va ser alumna de Joan Hernández Pijuan a la Facultat de Belles Arts Sant Jordi de la Universitat de Barcelona.
Es va especialitzar en pintura.
Ha realitzat diverses exposicions i ha estat seleccionada varies vegades en convocatòries d’art com el Premi de Dibuix Joan Miró, la Biennal de Barcelona i últimament el Premi de Pintura Torres García – Ciutat de Mataró.
Els blaus i els verds han estat una constant en la seva obra.
Actualment resideix i té el seu estudi a Catalunya, al Baix Empordà.
La seva terra és el Mediterrani.
