Subtle balances of textures and colors on canvas are focal points of the vibrant and energetic artworks Screated by Costa Rican artist, Rebeca Alvarado Soto. With her diverse artistic talents of dance, ballet and painting, one can always visualize the movement in her works.
Fascinated with the art produced by her grandfather, painting became a necessity for Rebeca. When she set up her easel and started a drawing or painting, she became mesmerized. “It was a wonderful and whimsical world, where I could convey all my thoughts into images,” says Alvarado. “And even now, every time I am in front of a canvas, it invades and transforms me; and it’s amazing, I don’t think when I paint. I let myself be carried away and my thoughts and feelings appear on the canvas.”
