"Art is how I contemplate and understand the blurred boundaries between real and virtual life and what is private or public."
Miami-based Venezuelan artist Johanna Boccardo has an ample creative career that includes fine arts, editorial illustration, product design, as well as urban street art. Through the masterful use of different media, she explores the application and interaction of color sequences to develop abstract ideas and concepts at various levels of non-literal meaning.
I grew up in a small colonial city in the Guayana region of Venezuela along the banks of the Orinoco river. A lot of my childhood was spent at my grandparent’s house, a magical place where the exotic and the familiar mixed, where every plant and animal exploded with vivid color. Life was intimate, personal, and private.
Today a lot of my output is the result of collaboration, whether it’s exploring inner worlds with private clients or augmenting public spaces for cultural institutions or companies. Art is how I contemplate and understand the blurred boundaries between real and virtual life and what is private or public.
