Beatriz Ledesma

I am a Latin-American artist, immigrant from Buenos Aires, Argentina currently based in Chicago, IL. I am a symbolist painter.

I create art inspired by emotional, spiritual, and social issues, of universal and personal themes embedded in symbols that bring forward ancient knowledge and mysteries of our human experience. The use of strong, bold, vibrant colors speaks to my Latin American roots and I used to denote feelings and emotions.

I paint objects, real or imaginary, investing in them symbolic meaning using color and light to guide the viewer’s mind to make associations of their own and discover the message enclosed in the image.
