Tania Contreras Rivera
Tania was born with a paintbrush in her hand. Surrounded and encouraged by an artistic family, she developed a passion and fascination for colors, drawing, sculpting and painting.
Under the mentorship of artists in Guanajuato, Tania grew as an artist, winning awards and school art competitions. In 2001 she attended the University of Guanajuato to further her artistic talent and improved drastically in technique, perspective and color blending. In 2003 she entered the Casa de Cultura en Guanajuato where she was able to collaborate and evolve her talent within this artistic community.
After some time experimenting with different types of Modern and Contemporary art techniques, Tania developed her own artistic trademark of fantasy street scenes with the use of vibrant oil colors. Combined with her passion for realism, which inspires her to paint realistic almost photo finish quality paintings, Tania’s art is sold before the paint is even dry.
Tania’s art has been exhibited and sold at Gallery Aspen in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, as well as commissioned works produced for patrons from Mexico, the United States and Canada.
She is proud to exhibit her original oil on canvas paintings now at Splurge Art Gallery in Bucerias Mexico and hopes that her use of vibrant colors will bring life and flavor into any art collection.
