Artist of the moment…….Remedios Varo Uranga

 

 

Remedios Varo Uranga was born in Angles, Spain in the year 1916. Remedios Varo Uranga was a painter who worked in a Surrealist style. The artist attended the Academy of Art San Fernando located in Madrid, Spain. Her father was an industrial engineer and as a young child the artist would copy the technical drawings her father brought home from work.

Whilst the artist was attending college a civil war began in her native country so she relocated to Paris, France. It is her that Varo Uranga became influenced by the Surrealists and starting painting in a Surrealist manner.

She was first married to a painter named Girardo Lizarraga. After they separated she lived with a French poet.

When the German’s took over Paris, France during World War 2, the artist relocated to Mexico City, Mexico where she would remain the rest of her life.

Most works are painted with oils on Masonite.

What a great surrealist painter. The artist is often compared to a contemporary already profiled here named Leonora Corrington.
