If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
Within the contemporary plastic panorama emerges the work of the Guatemalan- Chilean painter, Javier Azurdia (1961). After residing in Europe for almost 10 years, his renewed interest in Guatemalan traditional colorism, brought him to la Antigua Guatemala in 1988, where currently resides. Azurdia revitalized the traditional oil techniques through his pictorical stratus technique.
Azurdia's work has been rewarded in Guatemala, Florence and Rome. He has exhibited in France, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and the United States. In Guatemala, his art has delighted us on several occasions in galleries as important as the Ixchel Museum, The Attico, The Tunnel, El Sitio, and the National Fine Arts School of Guatemala (ENAP), among others.
His works can be found in many private collections in Latin America, Europe and the United States. After exhibiting solely in Europe between 1982 and 1986, Azurdia received a grant for achieving superior studies in the Fine Arts Academy in Florence, Italy, where he obtained a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts (1986) and later a Masters degree in Art Restoration from the International University of the Art, Florence, Italy - UIA - (1987).
About my artwork
After being immersed for nine years within the digital world, Azurdia returns with a new proposal of forces and tensions, and a greater emphasis among the dynamics of colors. He presents a work that attempts to understand the lighting of color (illuminist), and tries to preempt these shades lighty through oil on a canvas full of texture and through his new digital art on canvas.
