Liliana Benzaquen Biography
My name is Liliana Benzaquen, I was born in Argentina, at the age of 9, I moved to Venezuela, then I lived in Houston for 5 years and recently moved to Miami. My pasión from child was drawing and painting but my parent didn’t want me to study Art so I studied computer science. It was when I was pregnant of my first child when I started studying in many differents art institutes and I could stop doing my work since then. I studied in Federico Brand art institute in Venezuela( 1996-1998), taller of Samuel Baroni (1999-2003), the school of Realistic Art in Canada summer (2006) , Vermont, Bennington school of art summer (2007) , Galssell school of the art museum in Houston Texas.( 2012-2017). In 1998 i had an interview in a magazine Ocean Drive Venezuela, talking about my arte. I exhibited in Caracas , Venezuela , Houston and recently in Miami were I recently moved. Exhibitions in Miami: in Artwood56 in Windwood art Basel week 2017, Art Fourtlauderdale Fair on the Water 2018, yellow bench exhibition for Venezuela and proximally in A Bienal of a Contemporary Art ,in Buenos Aires , Argentina. I’m applying to GROW art show because in my faces I express how I grow as an artist and as a person after spending 5 years taking care of my husband who went throw a very long cancer treatment , and finally he won . In my faces I use Papeles Razgados, as part of a painful but also a growing process of life trying to express myself. In my work I add the element of a paper boat which represent how frágil I was and means that I felt like I was in a storm in the middle of the ocean. But the faces are calm and relaxed because I have in my deeply knowledge that everything was going to be alright.
