Exhibit Artists

Ana Córdoba
Ana Córdoba

Ana Córdoba is an artist born in Bogotá, Colombia. Coming from a family rich with creativeness, art played a major role in Ana's life since she was a little girl. After moving to the United States, her passion for art and her creativity drove her to pursue a degree in Graphic Design at USC Upstate. While at USC Ana also minored in Art History.

Having moved to the United States at age 21, Ana's art has been influenced by both her native country and her adoptive one. Working with a variety of media, the canvas is a record of Ana’s experience with the medium and color as she employs bold, rich colors, mixed media, her favorite impasto technique characterized with spontaneous knife-strokes and textured paintings, to create an emotional tableaux from an abstract expressionist manner, to surrealist imagery.

As an artist, rather than one single subject serving as inspiration, Ana's practice covers an entire spectrum of topics of her interest, where she aims to promote messages about her Hispanic heritage, feminism, spirituality, the environment, and equality, among others. Ana believes that an artist has the tools to communicate with a language she considers universal: art. Ana Córdoba currently resides in Spartanburg, South Carolina where she hopes to spread her message: Choose Love.
