Mariana Acevedo

I was born in Chile, where I worked as a designer and also attended a renowned artist’s oil painting studio for 9 years. I came to the UK to study Fine Art in Oxford Brookes University, and now have a BA in Fine Art (1st class) and an MFA in Fine Art. I am a UK based visual artist and my work is mainly developed in oil painting, photography and collage. I position myself as a mindfulness artist, therefore observation in stillness has an important role. Nature, with its world of phenomena and appearance, which is mainly my subject, is in constant change, but there is something in the background that exists on its own, a clear and natural energy, a primordial awareness, a truth; and when observing, I seek this truth, to see what is behind the obvious, normally unnoticed. Over a decade practicing yoga and meditation deeply influenced how I make art, and now it has been the foundation of the development of a teaching method that I have called Art in-Meditation (AiM). This is the basis of all the art classes offered through our website.
