“The garden as an attempt to tame nature, which is so wild, so indomitable”
Ana Vanessa Urvina is a Venezuelan artist who works on the subject of landscape from a contemporary perspective. She rides two waters in the field of art, between a solid academic background and her development as a creative artist. Her proposal is a rich combination of the exuberance of the jungle, the chromatic luminosity of the tropics and the voluptuousness of the line, to represent the miracle of nature's abundance.
Precisely her formal education is carried out at the School of Arts of the Universidad Central de Venezuela. Upon graduation, she taught at this same School of Arts and at the Universidad Católica Andrés Bello. Later, she became the recipient of the ALBAN scholarship (América Latina Becas de Alto Nivel), aimed at Latin American professionals in Spain, to pursue a Master of Arts in Artistic Production at the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia between 2007 and 2008. In this process, according to the artist, "I was able to experiment with a lot of practical techniques, and from there, I definitely decided that I wanted to be involved in creation". In 2012, she continued her studies with a theoretical-practical course on the creation of artists' books at the School of Arts of the Universidad de Costa Rica, which gave her the tools to work in different formats and sizes.
