The Endangered, Can Art Save Them?
An International Art Exhibition
(November 7 through January 8, 2021)
Born in 1968, Venezuelan-American artist Maria Brito expresses herself with images of her imaginary nature. Concern for the destruction of nature has accompanied her throughout her life. She constantly expresses the importance of nature to human life, and her love for it is expressed through her artwork.
She has enjoyed and experienced art at home since her childhood. Her mother was a painter, while her father displayed paintings made by renowned Venezuelan artists.
With a Bachelor's in Architecture and interest in visual art, she was certified in cultural heritage inventory, museography, conservation, and restoration.
Between 1997 and 2002, she continued her education on the language of arts, composition, color, and elements of painting in Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela and the US, participating in group exhibitions.
I want to express my joyfulness at how beautiful and delicate is the natural creation that surround us. The greatest work of art is the living nature, it is perfection that gives us life, but human beings insist on dominating it, making it imperfect with acts to adjust it to their taste and comfort, even going as far as to destroy it. Understanding the beauty of nature, our connection with it and the need for it to survive, will help us live in harmony and save ourselves from extinction.
