About the Artist - Diana Mendoza
Born in Junin, Peru, Diana Mendoza graduated as professor of painting in the sixties from the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes with one of the highest awards in the specialty of painting and drawing. She worked as a teacher and designer before devoting all of her time to painting. The spiritual art of Diana Mendoza is a blend of European styling and Peruvian techniques into a unique style by combining gold and silver leafing with oil on canvas. She completes her creations with a touch of patinas. The elaborate, time-consuming process results in sublime and dramatic imagery that is universally appealing and touches the human spirit. Focusing on religious imagery (best known for her renderings of the blessed Madonna) the artist works in small and large formats, including triptychs and diptychs, in order to appeal to an extensive audience. Through exquisite composition, dramatic texture, and dynamic architectural components, Mendoza is constantly honing her technique and experimenting with new elements of composition and style. She spends countless hours studying new subject matters in order to keep her paintings fresh and appealing.
