    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.

    Love this portrait of Robin Williams. It conveys the warmth and personality of this amazing guy so well.

    This artist sure had fun painting this scene of the Universe! Reading the story with the painting, you can see how the process of painting is such a joy, and the artist actually goes on this journey outside the every day world to travel among galaxies and stars. Isn't that the real point to painting?

    Although the title evokes something completely different for me, the colors, values, drawing and movement in this piece are wonderful!

    Wonderful Native Indian portrait, with an amazing sense of movement and spontaneity, yet beautifully executed with a perfect underlying drawing -- difficult to achieve proportional correctness with respect to the angle of view. Colors washes and accent lines add interest and the upward flow really does convey the feeling of pride and purpose.

    I love this night scene depicting Native Indians gliding in stealth across this slow moving waterway in their bark canoe. The angles of the bank and water reeds create a wonderful sense of depth. The composition is excellent, leading to a sense of a story by the placement of elements; the colors -- vibrate with interest from the range of deep blues to the red tinges of color on the canoe.
