About Virginia Garcia Costa

Virginia Garcia Costa is an Argentinian artist based in Switzerland. Virginia produces paintings and wall sculptures inspired by elements of nature. The way Virginia arranges her materials into what looks like a surface of drips or water flow makes her style truly unique.

Her colourful series is inspired by light and vibrant colors as a way of immersing oneself in joy and hope. When viewed slightly askance, the perpendicular lines give the piece a fresh sense of three-dimensionality.

The artist trained as a painter at the National Academy of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires.
She has gone on to receive awards for her art in Switzerland from Arte Binningen, p.i.n.k.elefant and Suisse-Art.
Virginia has exhibited at a variety of art fairs in Austria and Switzerland.
Public and private collectors in Europe, the US, Canada, Asia and Middle East have bought her work.
