My name is Roselin Estephanía, I’m a watercolor artist from Venezuela. I’ve been creating ever since I was able to hold a pencil in my hand. I went to “La Universidad del Zulia” to study Plastic Arts, with a mention in drawing. I’ve been working as a full time artist for over a decade now, I had the opportunity to work with brands like Sakura Color Japan and Acida Lucia, as well as painting the album covers for various musicians.
My painting style is completely surreal, some of my collectors call it realism with fantasy, which I agree with, so I describe my art like that as well. Even though I’ve been a full time artist for over a decade, it was only a couple of years ago that I started selling my originals, feeling them too personal before to even consider selling, but after seeing the interest of many collectors all over the world I feel understood, I feel my message appreciated. ~ roselinestephania.com
“Ever since I tried watercolors for the first time I knew they were it for me; it’s such a versatile medium, it allows me to do whatever I want. And what do I want? The contrast of sharp and delicate, of warm and cold; the real and the surreal. I live in a country that’s been drowning under a murderous dictatorship for many years now, so even though I’m pretty optimistic, and I love to see the beauty everywhere, I must face the sharp contrast of our horror whenever I’m outside of my house. So I put it all in my paintings: the beauty and the sadness.”
