Looking Beyond the Canvas

Exploring the Creative Journey of Angela Alés

Join Mastrius Founder Julie deBoer as she interviews the fascinating artist Angela Alés in the next episode of the Artist Diaries!

Angela Alés is a Colombian-born artist and Mastrius Mentor from the vibrant city of Barranquilla. With a heritage that blends Andalusian and Lebanese roots, Alés brings a rich tapestry of cultural influences to her artistic practice.

Her art, a fusion of Magic Realism and Surrealism, beckons viewers into enchanting realms of introspection. By masterfully employing Automatism, Angela intertwines the conscious and unconscious, crafting thought-provoking, deeply personal creations.

"Art needs to have a soul. It can't just be a technical display. Anyone can learn technique. Originality and creativity is what makes it special." - Angela Alés

Join Angela and Julie as they explore:

  • Angela's artistic journey and current inspirations.
  • The seamless blending of Magic Realism and Surrealism in Angela's art.
  • Uncover the methods to infuse your voice and soul into your own artistic endeavors!

As always, Mastrius events are LIVE & INTERACTIVE!

BRING YOUR OWN QUESTIONS! Mastrius Mentors are here to help. Always LIVE & INTERACTIVE!
