My name is Adriana Cordero, I was born in the city of Lima – Peru within a family passionate about art and nature.
Since 2010 I live in a small town in southern Italy called Gravina in Puglia.
In 2006 I graduated as a printmaker at Pontificia Catholic University of Peru, I then continued my studies of art and management in the city of Barcelona and art therapy in Italy.
I have been giving creative workshops since 2000 and have had the pleasure of conducting workshops in Peru, Spain and Italy.
As an art therapist I have worked in collaboration with public and private institutions, both in the clinical and wellness area with adults, adolescents, children and families. I currently offer face-to-face and virtual sessions. If you want more information you can click here for Italian and here for Spanish.
I have participated in numerous art exhibitions in countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Denmark, Spain, Indonesia, Italy, Peru, Russia, among others. So far I have three solo exhibitions and my works are in public and private collections like Miniart Exchange Group / Collezione D – Brazil, Naestved International – Denmark and The Americas Biennial Exhibition & Archive – U.S.A. In 2005 I won the Adolfo Winternitz Prize and in 2006 the Critics Prize in the city of Lima.
My works talk about the nature of the female world and focus on intaglio technique. In my printshop I work with traditional techniques but with less toxic materials in the respect of the environment.
I love to work with metal and the possibilities that this material gives, such as the strength and delicacy of the stroke. Each piece is worked by hand and belongs to a small numbered, stamped and signed edition. If you want to see some of my works you can click here!
I am also passionate about drawing and I enjoy experimenting with different materials, I like to see how different languages dialogue in the same space: color, shapes, textures, movement and images belong to a universe of which I feel part of. .
Each work is a special vision of my world.
In ogni sua opera, dalla più piccola alla più grande, da una foto scattata a un quadro disegnato, scaturisce l’amore che prova verso il suo lavoro.
Merci Adriana Cordero pour tes créations personnalisées, toujours avec une touche délicate et unique qui fait la diﬀérence. Merci pour ton professionalisme, ton talent et ton implication pour chaque projet. Nous recommendons!
Last Christmas I decided to do something extra besides my typical present of books. Something unique that could remain with my loved ones after they had ﬁnished reading their books and set them aside. I called Adriana and asked her to create a new series of bookmarks for me, “I will not suggest a thing to you. You are the artist. You have full control. I just want them to have an Adriana Cordero original.” The bookmarks she crafted are the ﬂowery prairie alongside which we read our books: peaceful, enchanting, ethereal. I love her art.
Love my etching of Daddy and Baby seahorse!!! Artist was wonderful to work with! Thank you for my beautiful bookmark too!
