Press Release:

Maria Aratún’s bursts of vividly hued paint are an expression of her optimistic outlook on life and passion for the creative act of painting.

Each jewel toned oil painting is a deeply personal manifestation of Aratún’s artistic spirit, rendered in her unique and multicultural visual vocabulary, and possesses a percussive, musical quality that stimulates both the viewers’ visual and auditory senses.

The works bloom into being, engaging the viewer as a witness to an aesthetic metamorphosis. Truly an extension of her persona, the artist views each artistic endeavor as a birth, as she provides the breath, light, and life to each vibrant canvas.

Born in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, where she now resides, the multi-lingual Maria Aratún has lived throughout the world, acquiring an international understanding that informs the individualized visual language that characterizes her body of work.

Aratún’s paintings are exhibited internationally and included in numerous private and corporate collections.
