Interview: Marisol Grijalva 

Luca Curci talks with Marisol Grijalva during VENICE INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2019 at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi.

Born and raised in Ecuador and having lived in Paris, London and currently in Dubai, this has given me the opportunity to learn many techniques from different teachers from all over the world.  My work is inspired by the flamboyance of the Latin American spirit, the reverence to nature as a nurturing feminine presence and the elegance of the European style.  I aim to express through forms the beauty of the feminine essence.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or as a part of preexisting works?
MG – My art piece presented at the festival was a preexisting work and actually it has been one of my early pieces when I started working with sculpting in clay.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the festival?
MG – In general I find your vision and themes for exhibitions very meaningful and open to different personal interpretations and specially I found “The Body Language” theme very aligned with my own art concepts.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
MG – I have been thrilled to have been invited to partake in ITSLIQUID exhibition. ITSLIQUID Platform has given me the opportunity to display my work on a more international level.

LC – What do you think about the organization of our event?
MG – It was quite well organized but I felt that lighting could have been improved.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
MG – Totally, I felt completely at ease with the friendliness and the positive attitude of the organizers and everyone there.
