Marinés Adrianza was born to artist parents and raised in the coastal town of Puerto la Cruz, Venezuela. She took to creative expression and a sensory approach to learning from an early age. This eventually led to her strong interest in the experiential nature of mixed media and frequent use of it in her work – a lot of which channels her studies of psychology and ongoing curiosity about human behavior and emotion.
Self trained, Marinés admits that, for her, painting is a love language, describing her process as “freeing from the stringent perfectionist bounds of conventional realism” and the traditional art schooling of the Academy.
Adrianza lived throughout Europe during her secondary education, an experience that introduced her to artists like Hundertwasser. She studied psychology at the Universidad Católica Andres Bello before moving to Miami to study interior design where she worked for Pavlik Yacht Design and in set design for TV shows.
In addition to her work as an artist, Marinés finds inspiration in nature and its connections, her roles as a mother, teacher, and curator / co-founder of PRONOIA[GALLERY] - an experimental virtual gallery concept that introduces artists and their art via immersive physical settings and short film. These experiences provide a diversity of inputs and perspectives as well as challenges that she finds valuable to her creative process and her growth as an artist and individual.
Based in Los Angeles, her work was most recently featured in the 2020 City of Los Angeles Latino Heritage Month Calendar. Adrianza's work had a special mention in Create! Magazine and Juniper Rag Magazine.
When she’s not involved in the making or contemplation of art and macro photography, she is furthering her sensory education in the kitchen, and in the wild.
