Estefanía Viyella, born in 1992 in Veracruz, Mexico, employs drawing and painting as tools to deconstruct her surroundings, fostering a meaningful connection between herself and the world. Rather than aiming to merely reflect reality, she uses these mediums to reconstruct it, employing metaphor as a means to explore her identity and establish her position in the face of reality.
Taking advantage of the plasticity and tactility of oil painting, Estefanía creates expressive images inspired by everyday life. Her background as a designer informs her unique vision for color combinations and compositions. Bold brushstrokes and simplified shapes contribute to the deep expressiveness of her work.
She holds a Fine Arts Bachelor's degree from the University of the Americas in Puebla. In 2018, her artistic prowess and vision earned her the Young Creators Program scholarship in Painting from the National Fund for Culture and the Arts (FONCA). Throughout her career, she has participated in several collective exhibitions that showcase her talent, including "Correspondencias" at the Faculty of Arts and Design of UNAM, "Nueva Piel para una Vieja Ceremonia" at Karen Huber Gallery in Mexico City, "Creación en Movimiento" at the Four Caminos Photo Museum, also in Mexico City, and "Otro trabajo, otro trabaja" at Espacio Cabeza in Guadalajara.
