Stage name of Barbara Allende Gil de Biedma (Madrid, 1957), artist, painter, poet and Spanish photographer.
It was one of the main names of the Madrid scene - La Movida - of the early 1980s, when she shared days and nights with Javier Mariscal, Ceesepe, Alberto García-Alix or Pedro Almodovar.
Self-taught, her photographs stand features black and white hand painted with watercolor. Ouka Leele mixes the Spanish traditions with the great colorful typical of this artist, honored with the National Photography Prize in 2005.
His stage name comes from a work of the painter "El Hortelano", a map of stars completely invented by him, in which appeared a star called "OUKA LEELE ".
The artist has always understood photography as "visual poetry, a way of speaking without words". And speaking as loud, he stopped traffic in the Plaza de la Cibeles, in Madrid, in order to make the renowned photography Rappelle-toi Barbara, representing the myth of Atalanta and Hippomenes and today already an icon of the city .
