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.

Colombian architect and artist Clara Orejarena was born 1962 in Bucaramanga.  She began expressing herself through art at a very young age.  Whether she was at school or at home, painting and drawing were always her main concern as what seemed to be a full time hobby.

Once it was time to pursue a career, she studied architecture and continued to pursue her artistic talents by spending much of her time in the studio of accomplished artists as Hernandez Prada.  The artist learned to view the world differently.  She was able to use her new understanding of objects and colors to convey strong feelings of power and emotion as she further understood people's views and tendencies. 

Clara studied interior design in London until she moved back to Colombia and had the privilege to meet the great artist Nijole Sivickas.  She allowed her to study at her atelier where she taught her to sculpt, paint in a more symbolic way, and once again view art in a new way.  To this day, she remains as one of the greatest artistic influence.  Thanks to Sivickas Clara's art has become much more focused on the propensity of objects and their properties.

Mrs. Orejarena also had the privilege to learn new ways to paint from great artist Ad Heeren in Netherlands.  She have been developing new ways of animal expression and more intentional application of colors.  Her love for nature is reflected in the struggle to show how animals, flowers, water, and all things can make us feel like better and more sensible human beings.  She believes that through the manifestation of emotions and feelings animals already have, her paintings can effectively connect with people and their personal emotions.

Clara has developed her own Tropical Surrealism. The last and most difficult step in this process is to incorporate underlying ideas and concepts into her paintings.  In order to do this, she uses abstract objects and settings. These objects and settings, having been largely influenced by her past experience with abstract sculpting, help her show these concepts and ideas in ways which would not be otherwise possible. 

Clara Orejarena has participated in many exhibitions and art shows along the South Florida Coast.  She has obtained many awards and one of her paintings was exhibited at the Coral Springs Museum of Art in 2010.
