FR/SU 4-7pm


Kunstraum Tapir | Weserstraße 11 | 10247 Berlin-Friedrivhshain


Rosaana Velasco expresses the enigma of her universe with elements that cause wonder when the mysteries involved in our divine origin are contemplated: Life and death as a cycle of evolution, the jaguar as a mythical creature within the ancient Mexican cultures, the shark as an enigmatic creature of the oceans.
These images evoke human transcendence placing us in a global consciousness of our responsibility with nature, with aesthetics and with the legacy for the evolution of humanity.
Velasco’s paintings invite to contemplate and reflect the mystical contribution we are to this universe.
Rosaana Velasco received the Bachelor of Visual Arts at the ENAP Mexico National Autonomous University and graduated from the Düsseldorf Academy of Arts with the title of Master-Student by Professor Daniel Buren. Her work has been shown in more than 100 exhibitions like the Bellevue Saal in Wiesbaden, Gustav-Siegle-Haus, Kunstbezirk in Stuttgart.
