"Having experimented with both figurative and abstract painting during different periods of my life, I have been pursuing their union when representing the human figure in motion. By juxtaposing different planes, materials, and styles, I intertwine the central figure with its surrounding background. My work seeks that symbiosis between the abstract and the figurative, between energy and movement, and, in a more intimate way, between strength and kindness. It lives in synchrony with the times, its surroundings, and social context. It is dynamic and intense. My paintings often portray strong, free women fighting for their dreams depicted with beauty and grace. I wish to offer inspiration to all women. I want them to feel empowered and represented on that canvass. Likewise, I feel responsible to create a dialogue with my art that will bring forth humanity and dignity in the human subject." - Daniella Queirolo
Daniella was born in Lima, Peru. From an early age, she demonstrated an affinity for drawing and painting figures in motion. Daniella relocated to the United States during her early twenties, and graduated summa cum laude from The Tyler School of Art in Temple University, Philadelphia, with honors. She then traveled extensively throughout Europe, Asia and Latin America, residing in Buenos Aires, Lisbon, New York and London for several years. Her experiences and exposure to such diverse places and cultures had a profound influence on her painting style, which depicts her passion for all forms of art, including performance, music, dance and architecture.
Daniella’s work has been featured in several publications. She was a finalist in the prestigious international competition “Boynes Emerging Artists Award 2021”, a finalist in the “Contemporary Art Award 2021”, a selected artist in the painting category in Mod Portrait 2021 (MEAM, European Museum of Modern Art, Spain) and Winner of the “Best Overseas Painter Prize” at the United Kingdom’s “Holly Bush Painting Prize 2021”. Her work has been exhibited in Art Shows and Art Fairs in Latin America, the United States and Europe. Her paintings are showcased in distinguished private collections around the world.
