CARMEN SASIETA

She was born in Peru, but currently lives in Weston, Florida. From an early age she demonstrated precocious talent for drawing and painting. Upon finishing high school in Lima, she studied graphic art and advertising. From 1984 to 1995, she lived in Mexico and graduated with honors from the Autonomous University of Guadalajara with a major in physical therapy and rehabilitation. She began to paint and craft her early artwork without having undergone formal training. In 2000, she had her first art show and in 2003 her first European show at the 5th International Biennial of Contemporary Art in Florence, Italy. She spent 2005 in Madrid, where she had the opportunity to come into direct contact with the work of the great masters and to attend art history courses at the Prado Museum. During her stay in Europe, she joined various art groups and took part in shows in several cities, including Madrid, Barcelona and Cordoba. In 2008 and 2010 she was selected by the National Beaux Arts Society of France to display her works at Paris' Carrousel du Louvre. The most frequent subject matter of her paintings is women, women doing daily tasks and striving to perform decent work in pursuit of self-improvement. Her art is essentially figurative and touches upon themes of local customs and social and magical realism, indications of her character and sensitivity. She has successfully participated in biennials and collective and individual exhibits in the United States, Spain, France, the U.K., Italy, Denmark, Germany, Uruguay and Argentina and earned numerous awards throughout her career. Many articles about her work have been published in art books, newspapers and magazines in the United States and Europe. At present, Bellarte Corp. represents her in Asia. Sasieta's constant quest for growth and development have prompted her to take part in art workshops led by such prestigious artists as Hernán Miranda of Paraguay and Baruj Salinas, Cuban-born professor at Miami Dade College.
