Artist

Art can inspire, energize and induce a positive emotional response. For this reason, we are committed to featuring more visual art into the total experience of our customers, visitors and attendees. In keeping with the City of Austin’s Art in Public Places Program (AIPP), several iconic pieces were commissioned as part of the capital improvement budget for the original construction of the Austin Convention Center and subsequent additions. In addition to the public art collection, the Austin Convention Center Department began acquiring additional works by some of the region’s most accomplished artists, which can be found in various spots throughout the facility. Keep your eyes peeled for any of these exceptional works during your next visit!

Angela Navarro

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.
