    Andrea Fuentes was born in McAllen, Texas on March, 31, 1992. She attended the Art Institute of San Antonio and the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. As an artist, Andrea’s goal is to share her expressions to the world. Andrea lives in San Antonio, Texas.   

    Andrea’s abstract paintings are otherworldly and bizarre, often threading on the strange and beautiful. She puts all her hopes and fears on the canvas, producing almost dream-like hallucinations. Some of Andrea’s recurring themes are self-expression of the female body and its raw sexuality. She prefers depicting nude women in her paintings, as a way of honoring and capturing the allure and power that femininity has. Andrea’s paintings are vivid and brightly colored, showing how striking life can be. This painting was created by using oil on large canvases. Her influences include Jackson Pollock. Her paintings have been accepted to the 2017 London Art Biennale2017 XI Florence Biennale and the 2017 Bienal Internacional De Arte El Escarabajo Mexico.

    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.

    Well, one must read the description with this painting. The artist projects such an enthusiastic spirit and I am immediately caught up! This painting surely conveys the fantastical, a place inspired by dreams of other realms -- yet within this world, shrouded in the lore of history and days gone by.

    I wish there was more socially motivated art such as this one about beach erosion; the concept is well symbolized with falling angles and elements. There is color (life) above but a cold bareness below.

    Very colorful meeting of shapes conveys a happy feeling. Looks like a gathering of boats -- as if they are all talking.
