Rosario, who some in the art community may know as Rosario Psy , originally from La Paz Bolivia, started painting at an early age; Her main inspirations and influences come from artists such as Salvador Dali and Frida Kahlo as well as the Andean culture, sounds and bright colors characteristic with South America. Growing up and being part of a scenery filled with traditions, rituals and art in all its forms helped her open her mind and perspective on seeing and portraying reality on canvas. Always looking to mix mysticism, spirituality and surrealism in an interactive fun way, using bright contrasting colors along with unusual textures that are meant to represent and unify the concept of the piece; These elements combined mainly characterize her artwork and technique. Rosario's artwork core goal is to express and represent the ambiguity between spiritual freedom and the struggle of the flesh.
The will that we all have to be freed of our own perceptions of life and let go, think about the unseen, colorful and vivid of our thoughts. Rosario graduated from the School “San Ignacio de Loyola” La Paz - Bolivia and decided to pursue her higher education in arts. She attended“Universidad Catolica Boliviana” and then moved to the United States where she received her degree in Graphic Design at The Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale from where she graduated. She currently works at Master’s Fine Art Gallery in Ft. Lauderdale where she does embellishment on limited edition canvas , graphic design and simultaneously started working on a Mosaic Mural Project for the city of Pompano Beach , scheduled to be finished and displayed in 2018. When Rosario is not working she spends her time painting pieces for weekly art shows, performing live art at local events and working on different designs for diverse companies.
Although, her style and scenery can change from piece to piece it is apparent her thoughts that are placed before us on canvas come from a deep, higher perspective of consciousness and wonder. This is how she started getting involved in the arts and being part of different exhibits in Bolivia and U.S. Some of her Artwork has been displayed at: The Art Institute gallery for the Alumni Art Show.
