Born on August 4, 1954, Patricia Figallo learned drawing and painting techniques from her husband, Francisco Cienfuegos, a Novica featured artist. In addition to handicrafts such as knitting and toy making, she practiced her art only part-time until 1999 when she immersed herself fully. Her art is an expression of her feelings.
Also an accomplished poet, Figallo has won awards for her verses from Lima's Colegio Nuevo Mundo in 2001 and 2002.
She expresses her Inca heritage through oils on canvas, showing the world the wonderful achievements of her ancestors. A challenge for the artist is to mount an exhibition of her works in the capital, and she is currently working to organize a collective exhibit in the Presidential Palace, scheduled for the end of 2003. Her perseverance and dedication have helped her make this a reality, in the same way she has achieved each goal she sets for herself.
"I still have much to do with my art," Figallo says. "I want to paint a series based on pre-Hispanic compositions."
Pop Art began is an artistic movement that began in the late 1950's in reaction to the sophisticated and elite nature attributed to abstract art. In a pop art painting, the artist makes a commentary on contemporary society and culture by redefining popular images. The aim is to bring art into everyday, contemporary life. In that sense, Novica's gallery of Pop Art paintings becomes an original adventure through which you can explore faraway lands and their unique, contemporary cultures.
Novica's pop art paintings are characterized by a powerful use of color, such as Ida Ratna Ningrum's intense green paintings portraying the beautiful Indonesia. Pairat uses bold colors for his nude paintings of the legendary beauty of Lanna women, the historic kingdom in northern Thailand. In Ghana, Felix Armah Arkutu shares the wisdom in the Ashanti people's Adinkra symbols through pop art stylizations in his dance paintings.
