Winibey López – Visual Art Sur

Winibey López

(1983, Caracas, Venezuela) is a young and upcoming artist who recently graduated in Fine Art from the Armando Reverón Fine Art University Institute, after which in 2010 she completed a Diploma on the Middle Ages at the Metropolitan University in Caracas.

López’s practice centers on the exploration of the private and the public, where she specifically explores representations of women in diverse situations. Her paintings often incorporate fabric and textiles as she draws on her personal experience and memories in order to recreate domestic settings loosely based on the colors, textures and designs she associates with her childhood.

Her portraits create an intimate atmosphere, where women take on heroic or intimate forms takes on a whimsical yet tender tone. Although still a young artist, López has been exhibiting her work for nearly ten years. Her most recent solo exhibition took place at the Galería Extracto in Caracas and was preceded by two solo exhibitions in 2008 at the Alliance Française and the Galería Bortot.

López began to attract critical attention in 2003 when she won Third Prize in an art contest organized in Venezuela by the Daniela Chappard Foundation; in 2006 she was awarded a Highly Commended Prize in the Juan Lovera Art Contest and received a Highly Commended award in the XIII Alejandro Otero Art Contest in 2010 for the painting Ultrafeminina.
