Born in 1985, Valentina Canseco is a Brazilian-Chilean artist who lives and works in Paris. She is a resident at Studio Poush, a creative and exhibition center in Aubervilliers.
Valentina Canseco’s visual language is expressed through a variety of techniques, from drawing to installation. She favours simple forms and lines, pairing them with contrasting colours and materials. Whether reflecting on the architecture of urban space, objects or landscapes, the artist reveals a particular sensitivity within her art. Her vivid, colourful works bear witness to a sensitive experience of the world around her. She puts people back at the heart of her work, questioning our relationship with space and objects. Creating optical experiments in turn, she also plays on the confusion of material perceptions. She declines and deconstructs objects, using them as matrices with infinite potential. Through these games of transformation, her representations become abstract but no less striking. Valentina Canseco favours the poetry of objects and Nature, which she conveys with powerful colours and a pointillism achieved with a spray gun.
The artist has made a number of prestigious collaborations, including the 62nd Salon de Montrouge in 2017, the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale as part of the French Pavilion, and the Villa Datris Foundation in 2020 and 2021. Her first solo exhibition Médusée took place at the Ars Longa gallery in July 2022.
