My works express how I feel or see people and things, at all time desiring to show
through new materials, techniques and mediums my style. My language is about the
search of expression, feelings, sexuality and abstraction.

 

Italo-Brazilian artist, lives, studies and works in Milan and Miami.
Her paintings are gestural and aesthetically similar to artworks from the Abstract
Expressionist movement, but as a lover of art history, Vargas’ work gains inspiration
from art throughout history and in a variety of styles. Her canvases are filled with
highly textural brush marks and color application. Beginning her education as a fashion designer she realized the fashion industry was not the correct setting to explore her creative impulses, and then decided to pursue a painting career. Vargas paints her abstract and abstract figurative works with mainly acrylic and oil paints but has experience and appreciation for additional mediums. She attended Istituto Marangoni Milano for a Fashion Design intensive program and Fine Arts at Accademia di Belli Arti di Brera. Also worked as an apprentice at Atelier Lou Borghetti (Porto Alegre - Brazil) to refine her studies and practice. Now working on her portfolio and creating her own techniques at her studio. Always discovering and experiencing new things to apply to her art. Her artwork evolves as she gains experiences in the world, but at the root of each painting are basic human emotions shared by all in different forms. Her artistic
language seeks to express feelings of vulnerability, happiness, energy, sexuality, and
so on. Her abstract works express shared human emotions and are made to connect
with her own and other’s specific emotional life experiences, providing a space for
connection and reflection.
