Visual artist Valentina Bilbao began painting at a young age and opened her studio Pinceladas to teach children how to paint while she attended high school. She later went on to attend drawing and painting classes at the Ateneo de Valencia in Venezuela, while she was completing her Bachelor in Humanities at the Institute Santa Cruz. She became a teacher at IEE Carabobo and Jose Felix Sosa Schools of learning difficulties. For a couple of years, she studied ceramic and 3D art while continuing academic instruction to complete her education in Child Psychology. She then proceeded to complete her education at the University of Artes Plásticas Arturo Michelena and most recently completed the Modern Art
and Ideas course by MOMA. She will soon be licensed as a psychology technician in the United States to better understand the emotional component behind her work as well as spread her message of growth and betterment with others.
From an early age, Valentina revealed her interest in the Arts, through her talent for painting and poetry, as well as a love for music, which is today her central source of inspiration and the main media for her abstract paintings. A diverse color distinguishes each one of Valentina Bilbao’s artwork that through the years capture new dimensions and artistic styles. The use of a spatula to add dimension and texture has been one of her most characteristic skills. Today, Valentina creates her one of a kind pieces by carefully including a dripping technique. The circular form is a key component in her art for suggesting energy, cosmic creation, and movement. Her artworks are intense, as it is her ardent happiness in communicating her love for nature, humanity and enlightenment. Valentina Bilbao’s art represents a new renaissance for this millennium, as she is an artist that wants to leave an influential perdurable statement for her time and
for generations to come.
