As an artist and pattern designer, Malús Arbide’s work flourishes in an open field of artistic creativity and experimental demand. It is precisely because of this freedom of origin that her pieces are attractive and surprising.

Her pattern designs are especially well-known for the integration of contemporary images and objects, the skill and artistic judgment in the use of colour, the audacity of the chosen motifs and a tendency towards the field of the experimental. At first glance, they seem to follow the classic rules of small motif repetition together with an expert use of chromatic combination, but they also evoke surprise and affinity in the observer because of the themes incorporated: images of the sub-atomic world, molecules, computer architecture, biology, statistical diagrams or mathematical functions.

The fascination engendered by her designs has a lot to do with the microscopic unconscious, with the presence of objects which we know are close to us despite remaining invisible. Malús Arbide’s graphic configurations produce a sense of sophisticated seduction through the use of scientific matrixes and the structures of abstract knowledge. Despite the somewhat raw origins of her materials, her designs display a rare and welcoming elegance.
