- Silvia Suarez
Born in Pucallpa, Peru, in 1958. Despite her early artistic inclination, Suarez was forced to select a “more productive” field because painting was economically and socially risky. Victim of the circumstances, Suarez had to study conservation and restoration, a field related to the arts but not her choice. Fortunately, today, 20 years later, she is married to a painter and she has evolved in to one of the best painters in South America.
To the critics, Suarez has that magical touch that painters like Fatin-Latour and Redon had. Her paintings show a nice soft brushstroke that commands strength. Her colours are soft and angelical, but with character.
These attributes did not come easy, however. It has been a hard and long struggle that make her almost abandon her dream, more than once. Fortunately, her husband, the well-known impressionist painter Jose Lopesalcedo, convinced her to persist, and it has paid off.
Her exhibitions include important Salons like Museo de Arte de Lima and the Alianza Francesa.
