My name is Maricarmen Pizano, I was born in Mexico City and currently living in Chicago.
I studied Architecture in the National Autonomous University of Mexico. Art at The Palette and Chisel Academy of Fine Arts and after that my formation has been self taught.
To create my paintings and illustrations using the language of color and line, putting emphasis on the small detail in order to leave a feeling, which speaks to my concept. I create textures that inspire to tell a story in poetic form, and call attention from the soul of the viewer.
"My inspiration is my Life. Every event, memory and every single feeling I experience contributes to my work.
Music and coffee are my two favorite condiments that help me to develop my concepts. When I paint I tell stories. Every detail and stroke of my brush are equally important to express what I am trying to say. The "game" between viewer and painting is fascinating to me. I like the way the spectator can tell their own individual story on a particular canvas. When this happens, when my art work makes others feel in some way, is when I believe that my mission as an artist is complete."
