Mexican and Italian Architect and self-taught Artist. Born in Mexico City in 1965. Graduated in Architecture in Mexico City in 1991. She is the great-granddaughter of the well-known Mexican artist Carmela Duarte Garcia. In 2006 She moved to live in Italy for love. Since 2016 She has been making artistic works, by transforming aluminum sheets into sculptures. In 2017 two of her sculptures were allocated in public places in Porto Rotondo, Costa Smeralda in Sardinia, Italy. Since 2019 two of her Sculptures became part of 2 Museums's Art Colections, one at the Papalote Museum in Mexico City and the other at The "Museo dei Lumi" in Casale Monferrato, Italy. She won 4 first Sculpture Prizes and 1 Architecture Prize, in October 2020 she won the Biancoscuro Art Contest 2020 prize, in 2019 she won the 13th. Arte Laguna Prize in Venice in the Business for Art Category and 2 in Palm Springs, USA. The lightness of aluminum allows her sculptures to move in the breath of the wind. Thanks to the total reflection properties of up to 98% of this brilliant aluminum, her sculptures reflect natural and artificial light and blend into the environment, taking colors from nature as a reflection.
With her works, Chelita wants to bring joy and light.
