About Karina Matheus

Born in Caracas, Venezuela. When I was 7 years old I fell in love with Kandinsky, the music, the dance and spiritual books.

I live in Miami since 2008. I have spent these years supporting the cultural movement and organizing numerous cultural events promotion with my art project BEART.

I believe that in the abstractionism lives a chromatic dance that establishes a triangular dialogue between the artist, the spirit and the divinity.

In my search, I invite the viewers to be my companion, to immerse in the world of my abstract paintings and installations and discover oneself. I encourage the viewers to explore the possibility of communication between the inner world of human beings and the outside world of the collective.

Education

I studied Arts in Cristobal Rojas School of Art and Universidad Central de Venezuela; Music in Jose Angel Lamas School of Music and Jose Lorenzo Llamozas School of Music; Photography in Roberto Mata School of Photography; Dance in Julio Campos Academy; Literature Courses in Universidad Central de Venezuela and Universidad Simon Bolivar.

I have a Bachelor in Communications and Cine in Universidad Catolica Andres Bello and Master in Marketing in Universidad Metropolitana.
