    Andrea Fuentes was born in McAllen, Texas on March, 31, 1992. She attended the Art Institute of San Antonio and the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. As an artist, Andrea’s goal is to share her expressions to the world. Andrea lives in San Antonio, Texas.   

    Andrea’s abstract paintings are otherworldly and bizarre, often threading on the strange and beautiful. She puts all her hopes and fears on the canvas, producing almost dream-like hallucinations. Some of Andrea’s recurring themes are self-expression of the female body and its raw sexuality. She prefers depicting nude women in her paintings, as a way of honoring and capturing the allure and power that femininity has. Andrea’s paintings are vivid and brightly colored, showing how striking life can be. This painting was created by using oil on large canvases. Her influences include Jackson Pollock. Her paintings have been accepted to the 2017 London Art Biennale2017 XI Florence Biennale and the 2017 Bienal Internacional De Arte El Escarabajo Mexico.

    Welcoming Table

    You did it! artistically captured !

    Detail in Big Strokes

    This painting shows amazing detail (color, texture) within such beautiful loose brushstrokes. I love it!

    A Flowery Village

    This fanciful, flower lined village reminds me of a visit to Epcot Center in Florida a few years ago.

    Mangrove Roots

    A view of colorful underwater roots ordinarily hidden from sight takes on an abstract quality and I feel the rhythm created by the repeating shapes, patterns, colors and textures.

    From a Memory

    Can't you remember driving down this road? The artist creates that strong sense of such a memory with washes, few strokes and low value colors in a landscape painting that relies on keen attention to perspective drawing.
