Biography



Chelita Riojas arte manuale figurativa

Mexican and Italian Architect and self-taught Artist. Born in Mexico City in 1965. Graduated in Architecture in Mexico City in 1991, became a member of the Mexican Architects's Association and worked as an Architect in Mexico. In 2006 I moved to live in Italy, leaving the Architecture. My creativity first lead me to oil painting. Having the need to invent, design and build, in 2016 touched by the charm of aluminum, I started to make artworks by transforming aluminum sheets into sculptures, inspired by nature. My  aluminum sculptures are camouflaged in the environment, taking the colours from nature as a reflection, they move with the wind blow,  join the sounds of nature with the raindrops, allow themselves to be caressed and curved by snowflakes and transmit light.
With this sculptures, I want to bring joy and light to any place and to anyone who owns them.
