Angela Navarro graduated back in 2000 with a Bacherlor’s degree in Art from the Facultad de Bellas Artes de San Carlos en Valencia, Spain, not without spending her last semester at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany.
Navarro’s work is very much inspired by Abstract Expressionism, Pop and the European Avant-Garde. She usually works with acrylic paint on canvas and is totally in love with contrasting bold colors, textures and heavy brush strokes.
At the moment she is working with nature-related motives, since it is closest to her eye level and it perfectly serves as a language for her thoughts. Navarro deconstructs leaves, petals, and branches and reuses them to create imaginary gardens. She wants her pieces to be decorative, entertaining and fun to look at.
Navarro’s favorite ones are the ones with the most details and wildest color combinations. She builds them as a journey and hopes they are also enjoyed as such. As a maze of color with infinite possibilities of navigation, where the wandering eye floats around the surface and invites your brain to come in and out of your inner thoughts…. Or just look at them and enjoy the colors.
