Carmen Sasieta 

Carmen SasietaCarmen Sasieta is a Social Realism artist, born in Peru.  She graduated in 1994 with honors from the Autonomous University of Guadalajara, Mexico, and has taken classes with renowned artists like Hernan Miranda and Baruj Salinas.

 

Carmen has traveled extensively to fulfill her desire to explore and understand different cultures and people. These journeys have given her the opportunity to experience life in all its splendor and struggles, enriching and allowing her to her observe issues that other women have to go through in search of their path, soul and identity. During her course of development as an artist, she has had the opportunity to witness and appreciate the accomplishments of many outstanding females as independent mothers, workers and entrepreneurs which she has represented in her paintings.

 

Sasieta's main technique is oil painting. At an early age she stood out with her natural ability for drawing and painting. She prides herself in her ability to intimately communicate with her audience. This connection is largely due to her “portraying with master strokes” throughout her paintings, providing profound expression and sentiment, something she enjoys enormously.

 

Carmen has participated in many art shows, both independently and in collective art exhibitions during her career. She has won many prestigious awards and recognition around the world in countries such as Germany, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Argentina and the United States. The journalist and art critic Michael Mills put it best when he wrote “She is so meticulous that Carmen’s work is reminiscent of Henri Rousseau’s art.” Much has been written about her work in European and American Art magazines. Living now in Florida, the Miami Herald and Sun-Sentinel follow her career extensively.
