Lorena Nuila creates abstract paintings where she can embody landscapes, the sea, the mountains and people around her dynamically and fluidly.
Lorena Nuila was born in El Salvador in 1960. As a girl, she enjoyed painting, coloring, crafts, inventing and knew her passion was in painting. She took art, drawing and design classes at the university and graduated with a degree in architecture.
After that, she continued painting with Salvadoran artists like Rosa Mena Valenzuela, who inspired her to keep studying art. Lorena decided to take painting classes in Spain.
The artist creates abstract paintings where she can embody landscapes, the sea, the mountains and people around her dynamically and fluidly. She also transmits emotions and reactions to the people who look at her work.
"My inspiration comes from the entire process that's taken me to where I am now. I've been able to take the ideas from the lessons I've learned through lectures, research and gallery visits where I appreciated different works from the wonderful artists I admire," she says.
For Lorena, pursuing art hasn't been easy and took time and effort. It was difficult to know which direction to take, but it's been satisfying for her to see her achievements and overcome the obstacles along the way.
Her objective is for more people in her community to appreciate and learn about abstract painting through exhibiting her paintings — not just in galleries, but in more accessible places. She also seeks to teach classes and share her passion with children from low income communities.
"I wish that my grandparents could see everything I've achieved. They died too soon, but they were the ones who taught me to persevere, to fight for my dreams and never give up. This is how I've managed to achieve my goals and continue innovating by never staying still."
