Susana Anaya Mexico

During her engineering studies, she attended the “Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas” where she developed her skills in drawing, oil painting, watercolours, charcoal, chalk and how to create sculptures with plaster and clay. Furthermore, she encountered a well-known Mexican painter, who became a great role model to her -el maestro Zalathiel Vargas. He taught her for many years the magic of painting techniques. She learned how to ease her soul so that her spirit was able to flourish in the creation of her signature work. 


The work is realized in a three-dimensional finish. It consists of impossible volumes created with oil that should have only two dimensions. For her, the proportions are key to the role of her work derived from her love of aesthetics. Most important to her art is the relationship of the parts to each other and then to the whole creation which is in harmony, thus beauty.



The colours she uses are created by mixing pigments and line oil, as the old masters did in former times. They are much brighter and more intense than normal oil colours and some are not available to purchase making them very special to her art. These colours reflect the vivid passion and intense beauty of the inner soul she is exposing and presenting in her work.




"My art is not constructed or based on an ideology or religion. I would describe my work as a labyrinth that arises by chance. The layering makes it more abundant, unthinkable and sometimes impossible.”


"I love the round, the curves... to me it's a representation of wholeness."
