Karla Higueros, Guatemala

Self-taught in painting, combines multiple techniques with her natural ability in her artistic work; using different materials she achieves textures, movements and more through abstraction.

She has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions, both in Guatemala and in New York City. Her work belongs to private collections in Mexico, Dominican Republic, Brazil, USA, Canada, Germany, and in Guatemala.

Her natural appreciation of art; her studies and experience of working ten years in advertising combined with living and having a studio in La Antigua Guatemala, have influenced her inspiration and artistic work.

The artist expresses, in relation to her painting: "To me, art is the light of my life and that light is a divine light".

This thought and feeling comes after analyzing the meaning that painting has in my life, and I can say that it is the "light" because even in the darkest moments of my life, painting it has been the light that continues to shine in my way… Is the expression of the freedom of being; being alive which means being in constant motion and not giving up. Hidden meanings that want to convey us a message through suggestive movements that lead the imagination to different times or moments of our lives.

My painting is color, expression, strength, sensuality, light, feelings, transformation, life, dreams, spirituality, each reflected on the canvas with its own and unique surrounding light.
