Biography from a third party submitted on 07/07/2006:
Victoria Montesinos was born in Mexico City, the daughter of a well-known Mexican movie director, Fernando A. Rivero, and Maty Humana.  Sent to live with her grandparents around the age of two, it was not long after that time that she started drawing and painting in response to the serious temperament of her grandmother. According to Vicky, “I became accustomed to enjoying my own world…Drawing was an escape from my communication problems. Besides, drawing was highly rewarding to me.” 

When she was just twelve years old, Vicky’s father noticed her talent and offered her the opportunity to study painting with a friend of his, the great Spanish painter, José Bardasano.  Having just opened a painting academy, Bardasano welcomed the young Montesinos to study under his direction for five years, initially during school vacations so that she could finish secondary school.  This was the beginning of her career as an artist.  Vicky has always believed in painting with total integrity, without submitting herself to the judgment of the market, style or expectations of others.  The topics she depicts in her paintings are not the product of intellectual analysis, but arise from tastes and affinities that take shape gradually in her mind.  When her ideas become clearly defined, Vicky begins to transform the canvas by abolishing its emptiness and nothingness: she stains the cloth, marks the lines, and then continues with brushstrokes, guiding herself intuitively and wisely until reaching the grand finale.

In general, she likes to work on various easels at the same time. Montesinos works without deliberations, on large canvases that show ethereal atmospheres overflowing with extravagance and sensuality.  The slender bodies she paints appear enveloped in marked brushstrokes that serve as both mantles  and tunics.  The flowers have silk petals, and invite us to discover their interiors. With her brush, Vicky knows how to share her great sensitivity, and for this reason her paintings captivate collectors and lovers of great art from around the world.

Biography from SIGFine Art-Dorog Gallery:
Montesinos was born in Mexico and is the only daughter of the well-known movie director, Fernando A. Rivero, and Maty Humana.  When barely three years old, Victoria was sent to live with her grandparents. She loved to draw from her early childhood.  By the time Victoria was twelve she had the opportunity to paint with Jose Bardasano, the Spanish painter who had arrived in Mexico as a refugee from the Spanish Civil War. She studied with Bardasano for five years.

In late 1983, Victoria moved to New York to work with a gallery to study developing high quality lithographic works.  During that period, Victoria's talent became recognized in the US.

Victoria decided to return to Mexico in the late 1980's.  She worked ardently in her homeland and developed a new style through her oil paintings and serigraphs on textiles.

In the mid-1990's, Victoria signed new contracts to work with various galleries in the United States. When Montisenos returned to New York she decided to make flowers the focus of her attention because she was captured by their beauty and described them as an incredible way for nature to show the infinity of existing colors.
