Rina Visual Artist
I have been drawing since I was a child, but I really started painting a few years ago. I guess that life had to teach me some lessons before I could start painting. I had to live, feel and breathe different experiences that colored my soul so that I could paint from it. My first exhibition was in March 2016 and started with a huge success.
Though I didn’t explore art while studying Law at the University, my ambition and love for canvases and brushes guided me to learn all that I could about it. I’m always learning and creating, and I guess that is why I love painting so much. I am a self -taught artist and that makes me so proud about my untamed creativity.
Each painting is a story that meant something to me, a space in time when some emotions and feelings were so intense that I had to let them out using my colors. My life was never boring and it still isn’t, so I guess I will never be out of stories to tell with my brushes. I want to paint the real stories we all have, the real emotions, not perfect images of perfect lives. I never had that and never will, as for me, my life is perfect in all its imperfections. When I feel my contradiction I can create. When I create, there I am true. If you really want to know me, stare closely at my paintings, and who knows? maybe you will find yourself too, hidden between the colors.
I believe that artists are defined by the work, passion, vision and emotions that are expressed in their creations. I believe in my work and vision and I am grateful to all people that relate to my work, and help me keep this passion burning. Thank you for letting my works, therefore me, join your houses, your stories and your memories.
It is my mission to make your soul vibrate, each time you experience my art.
