#1 Shirley Villavicencio Pizango - self-portrait
In March until September 2020, we’ve launched The Art Series, providing our members with access to exclusive artworks specially made for our community. As a Subbacultcha member, you received 16 artworks made by local and international creatives.
Members in the period starting from 20 March 2020 until 26 March 2020, received a self-portrait by Shirley Villavicencio Pizango (A4).
A crossover between her daily life in Ghent and the inheritance of her South-American culture is what defines her work. Geometrical figures and vegetal elements, linear patterns, daily situations in the Amazon and portraits of her family fill each painting, creating an intimate world. Her work reminds us of artists such as Picasso, Gauguin and Matisse, but also Frida Kahlo or Diego Rivera – great sources of inspiration for a young artist.
