Claudia Prada Biography
Born in Colombia Claudia Prada began her artistic career admiring the Costa Rican and Guatemalan art and tapestries of her childhood, she spent her childhood years in Central America. Her desire to draw and paint started then, but it was not until she studied in France and travelled to Italy and Spain that she began painting. Her colorful art reflects the traditional colorful palette of the Costa Rican carretas and the Colombian rural open buses or Chivas. Claudia merges the Latino and North American sensibilities as she began seeking knowledge about her family roots in Spain. The magic world she releases through art is strongly related to the magical realism movement with a soupçon of North America added in. Because she is a twin, she has been very interested in the concept of two and duality. Beginning with Romulo and Remus, she depicts in her art the idea of the double, but these two are not totally separated, but are instead united from one point portraying this duality that is later unified into one or the one splitting into two without totally being separated. For Claudia these forces are in constant unison or conflict: good/evil, love /hate, happiness/sadness. These forces are indirectly together, and since they supplement and complement each other they cannot be ever apart.
