Maria Berrios (b. 1959, El Salvador) joined the Creativity Explored studio in 1999. Berrios is known for working in a variety of drawing media and also is a printmaker.
As is evident from all of her vibrant works, Berrios’ favorite color is red. From family groupings, flora, and fauna, this hue is well represented with all of her typical subjects. Berrios’ art making process is very slow and meticulous. After sketching her composition, she often places her subjects around the picture plane so that the piece may be viewed from any direction.
In 2010, Berrios’ piece “Entre flores y pajaros” was chosen by CB2 as the imagery for a limited edition rug.
Berrios was a featured in the highly acclaimed exhibition, Super Contemporary, on view at Creativity Explored April 30 through June 17, 2015 in which she collaboarted with guest artist Sahar Khoury. Her work has been included in over eleven exhibitions at Creativity Explored.
