Piece description from the artist
From the series World Travelers (2012).
Based in South Florida, Elsa Victorios began her career in her native Colombia about 30 years ago. She studied at the National University and was a member of David Manzur's artists workshop. Later in her career, she represented Colombia at the Tokyo and Paris Biennials of 1984. After moving to United States in the late eighties, she worked as a freelance artist for decorators and managed her own art business. She currently teaches art privately, and her artwork is exhibited in galleries in the United States and Europe.
Her current work mixes abstract and figurative art techniques to depict individual struggles for well-being. She focuses on forms, symbolism, textures, and colors in order to create a language that allows her to communicate with the public. She mostly works with oil and acrylic on canvas.
