Bio

Maria Vida.
Artist

Painter, teacher, performer, and musician. From an early age, she developed drawing skills from the world of the unconscious. She graduated in Fine Arts, obtaining a scholarship to study at the University of Chile, where she extended her stay to get to know the Andean and Amazonian regions of South America. On this trip she arrived at the Shipibo community of Nueva Betania, a community of healers. She learned about plant medicine and chanting. Since then, she has been deeply linked to the shamanic world through art, understanding the relationship between these two as channels of the mythical universe.

Parallel to the study of drawing and painting, her interest grows in expanding the field of creation towards the body and sound, and he investigates butoh dance and singing. He holds solo and group exhibitions and presents performances at theater festivals and associations.

In her later trips to Nepal, Mexico and Guatemala, she continues to be inspired by ancient cultures and related to shamanism, and learns the use of pigments and ancient techniques to apply them in her paintings, which she makes herself, finding a crude and ancient pictorial language.
