MOD - Marcela Olivia Dorantes a prominent emerging artist that works between London, UK and Washington, DC has been painting since early childhood. MOD was awarded the International Prize Velazquez at the European Museum of Modern Art in Barcelona, Spain (Revelation III) 2019. MOD's first memories of art stemmed from her grandmother an artist - theater, opera, and art. MOD examines the interactions of wildlife, domestic animals and humans to express the experience of expansiveness, intimacy, domesticity and remoteness through her keen sense of space, shape, color and form. Birds, bears, dogs, and felines represent unfettered spiritual creatures symbolizing the transcendence of prosaic life Prosaic life where technology has been rendered a witness of every moment of our lives. Using the versatility of color in her art is her exclamation of gratitude to the world and synergy of life. MOD's art you linger on, art that you study, enjoy then come back for more.
Dorantes has been exhibiting locally and internationally currently in Europe - England, France, Netherlands, and Italy.
