Biography 

Andrea Merinsky is an artist from Valencia, Venezuela. She is currently pursuing a Masters's Degree in Architecture as a way to cross boundaries in art forms and design.

From an early age, Merinsky has been drawn to the arts and has experimented with studies that have given her the tools to think spatially and creatively. Her interest in history and psychology has also influenced her work conceptually; as well as her innate curiosity for crossing boundaries in the arts that come together in her paintings to create a balance of structure and free-flowing energy. Perspective and order create a three-dimensional atmosphere that juxtaposes organic and proportional forms. All tying into a sense of floating inside the artwork into the imagination.

She started her art career in 2018 and since then her work has been featured inside and on the cover of Magazines. Following showcases at the Orlando Museum of Art, Miami White's Art Gallery, SLS Miami South Beach Hotel, Mass District Fort Lauderdale Gallery, The Luxury Chamber of Commerce, South Beach Miami Gallery, and the Gallery Lounge at Boca Raton.

Artist Statement

My innate curiosity for crossing boundaries in art come together to create a balance of structure and free-flowing energy.  Perspective and order create a three-dimensional atmosphere that combines with organic/abstracted forms to give a sense of floating inside the artwork. On juxtaposing the complexity of the human form or an atmospheric perspective with abstracted forms, I aim to create an open space for imagination. 

 

Inspiration

I'm inspired by many artists and art movements throughout history: including the Art Noveau movement with  Klimt and Gaudi's color use and arabesque forms: a mixture of Gothic and organic forms. The Trompe de l'oueil innovations of the era are also seen in the works of MC Escher. 

Process

All coming from a large selection of photographs, sketchbook designs, and an art history background that are joined to create new ways of seeing in diverse perspectives and aiming to cross artistic boundaries

Many things can be seen through art but the most important is what stands out to each one of us and speaks personally, which is what makes the most special pieces special
