Desiree Maldonado

"My art is based on pure expressionism, through which I express my thoughts, emotions, and feelings. I work mostly with pure acrylic straight from the tube, creating spaces of colors and lines, defining faces or parts of figures with a mix of abstraction. It is a multidimensional world of colors, usually bright colors that join on the surface. I work with a dry brush, acrylic in paste, and oil pastels."

First prints - Acrylic on paper 22 x 28 in.

“I am a 2008 Olympic Gold Medal award-winning visual artist. I also have many other honors and awards associated with my artwork including exhibitions at famous art galleries, and inclusions in private collections as well as on public buildings and landmarks.   My art is based on pure expressionism, through which I express my thoughts, emotions, and feelings.

Since I moved to New York, I have found new elements and concepts that have enriched my current artwork process. These are based on the dynamic world creation (outer and inner forces) that conform to our structure as humans and as part of the universe. Artists as the creators and generators of life, creating new patterns that change our life and level of awareness. There are infinite ways of creating and making art. Artists from the past that have influenced my art process, including Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Maurice de Vlaminck, Franz Kline, Jackson Pollock, George Baselitz, among others, and Dante Montich who was my teacher and is considered one of the references for the expressionist movement in Cordoba, Argentina, and abroad.”
