My works emerge from strong passions about the issues of my time.
I enjoy and use life as my expressionistic classroom.
My life in South America and Europe (I had to leave Peru for to living in Belgium): this has had a powerful influence on my understanding and seeing how different peoples and atmospheres combined with new surroundings it create fantastic changing color palettes. I can almost feel colors and I am inspired to translate this sensation.
I grew up between the Peruvian coast, the little towns of the Andes Mountains and Peruvian Amazonian jungle.
Peru is the country where I was born. In Peru has to live together a different peoples, languages, and species diversity rain forest mammals, birds and reptiles.
My life in at rain forest cannot be compared with other which has helped create the beginnings my bright vivid color choices.
I enjoy diving and sailing in the clear waters of the Pacific Ocean and in the grey waters of the North Atlantics Ocean too.
I use my creativity to cause people to think critically about their lives and society and to consider ways to improve both...
I hope my paintings take you to the peoples and places of their inspiration and Iíve been trying to use my art to call public attention to the gaps between human ideals and human realities Leonor Villagra
