This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The following biographical information was provided by Mario Lohrer, the son of the artist,
Erna Y.

Living in Brazil Erna Y ( Erna Antunes ) works on her painting, sculpture and tapestry. Her inspiration comes from both nature and humankind, and expresses her belief that man is intrinsically connected to nature but is slowly destroying it. With her art Erna wants to bring Man back in contact with nature and its beauty. A return to nature is a return to the love of God and his creation.

Erna was the mentor and organizer of 1st Cultural and Arts Festival of Ouro Preto and Mariana (Brazil) in July, 1965 - the very first festival of its kind held in Brazil.  Since then the Mariana and Ouro Preto Festival is held yearly.

Her art (paintings and tapestries) are exhibited in private collections in Yugoslavia, Portugal, Japan, Australia, United States, Germany, United Kingdom, France, Jordan, India and Brazil.

Erna Y has been a member of the Brazilian Fine Arts Academy since 1970, and shortly thereafter she received the Pedro Américo Gold Medal of Honor.

In May, 2008 she was honored with the MEDAL OF VERMEIL by the French Societé Académique des Arts, Sciences et Lettres founded in 1915.

She is Universal ambassadress of Peace within the framework of the Universal Circle of the Ambassadors of Peace, France & Genève Suisse

Artist Statement:
Art is the most beautiful expression of the spirit
Openness to the soul's renewal will reconcile man and God through art... Him we serve and for man we produce.
Our minds aspire balance. In all there is a "touch" of light
