ABOUT THE ARTIST

Wendoly Monteiro da Costa was born in Neu-Ulm in 1988.

At the age of 4 she began taking art-lessons from the romanian artist BEVA ( Vasile Bedreaga ).

During her training she was taught various techniques like serigraphy, ceramics, porcelain, drawing and oil painting.

She will get inspired by the spatula – technique, which her art still stands for until the present day.

She creates abstract pictures consisting of oil-painted layers, forming thick, almost sculpture-like, surfaces.

Her spatula-technique recreates expressive art using surfaces to form a kind of relief showing the essence of the motive in structured way.

She skillfully uses the third dimension in to influence the effect of the incoming light on the canvas.

Surprise moments emerge through her unique processing and workflow with the provocation of a loss of control emerging through her spatula-technique.

The cracking in her pictures emphasize the communication between the viewer and the object.

The Peruvian-Czech artist, who has been creating and living in Berlin since 2009, invites her audience to sharpen their perspective towards backgrounds.

Statement

It is always the light, that I remember the most about any situation.

It is my Inspiration.

My sculpture-like paintings should, depending on the influence of light or from which angle you look at it, always be seen differently and never become boring.

I want my art to be like a magnet, I want the viewer to feel the urge to touch my paintings.

No matter how many paintings I have completed, every painting is an experiment and new experience to me.

We live in a world in which everything can be tracked and controlled, that’s why I don’t want to know how my painting will end.

I love the surprising moments and the loose of control on the way of finding the end of my paintings.

I believe in a moment of time when all female artists and artists who have kids are valued equally in the art scene and society. In my world of art, we are able to dream, feel and touch emotions. The only thing that separates us from this world is our effort to start writing this future and visualizing it, this is what influences me the most in my art.
