Represented by MTArt Agency, Stefania Tejada (1990) is a Colombian artist based in Paris, France. Her work empowers women and is a call to action to becoming more sustainable. She also seeks to capture the energy behind the feminine aura, our connection with motherhood, hoping to create a stronger empathy towards the female genre.
Through her work she also explores the power of the natural elements.
Her paintings are a journey from her Colombian identity opening a dialogue between all cultures. Her art has an extraordinary power to bring emotions into the soul and makes us all relate to each other. It communicates who we are, where we come from, and what we stand up for.
Stefania’s work is a play on possibilities, she reinterprets moments in history, breeding new life into established imagery: Eve and her relationship with the snake has captivated the artist since a very young age. A signature of her work is the piercing gaze of women staring back at the viewer, they are intended to reveal the deepest and darkest emotions that come along with being a woman in today’s world.
Her poetic and enigmatic scenes become metaphors that call back to nature as the source of all life and wisdom. The pieces are intended to stare at us and to haunt us.
Tejada has exhibited her work in New York, Bogotá, Mexico City, London and Paris.
