VANESSA NIEMBRO DE PAZ
I came to California from my native Spain seven years ago, and this new life journey brought me the opportunity to develop new angles in my art.
Over the last year I have been exploring figurative painting, which include two different streams. In my portrait series, “Homeless Soul,” I tried to find and evoke the dignity in the gazes of the people living in the streets. In my other line of work, I am exploring new paths in figurative painting. Here I try to experiment with the human figure by using mix media, which consist of newspaper collaging and oil painting.
