A Professional Artist With A Unique Vision
About the Artist - IO
IO lives and paints in Vienna. Since she was a child, she grew up with art, as her grandmother was a well-known painter with exhibitions locally and internationally. She has a BS in interior design, giving her years of study in both art and design. These two concepts are the very foundations of her art. Within interior design, her strengths were spatial design, AutoCAD/drafting, and lighting. Although these concepts flow into her art and remain a constant part of her, she breaks it down using deconstructionism. In doing that, she translates herself into each and every individual artwork.
In her pure Abstractions she uses a mix of chemical reactions and movement so each piece can not be duplicated and is a one of a kind.
In her Abstract Portraits she tries to capture the emotion we all feel and uses mixed media on canvas giving it a tactical texture.
Statement from the Artist:
"I have lived in many places as diverse as Luanda, Angola to now Vienna, Austria. This has allowed me not only to experience many different cultural perspectives but also to become a part of them, which gives me a distinctive view of the world and the art and cultures within it. I love to not only travel but to experience each moment embraced throughout my journey which is something I hope to translate in the art that I create."
