Cecilia Paredes (Lima, 1950) was born in Lima, Peru, where she studied Plastic Arts at the Catholic University of Lima.
She later went on to study at Cambridge Arts and Crafts School in England.
She was awarded the Publicacin Libro de Artista by the Universidad de Salamanca in Spain, the First Mention of Honor at the Bienal Centroamericana, as well as first prizes at the Salon Nacional de Grabado, the Salon Nacional de Grabado in Lima, the Municipalidad de Lima for serigraphy, and finally the Universidad Católica in Peru for theatre/lithography.
She is a contemporary performance and installation artist, who is best known for her unusual work in which she uses her own body as a canvas for body paint. Her last name, Paredes, which means walls in Spanish, perfectly suits her fascination with turning herself into a human chameleon and melting herself into the walls.
One of her most acclaimed series is her Landscapes, a floral series in which she is painted to match floral-patterned wallpapers; her hair, and sometimes an ear, is often the only indication that a person is in the image.
opera di Cecilia Paredes, Both Worlds
Cecilia Paredes è una body artist e fotografa peruviana famosa per le sue cosiddette “photoperformance” in cui si mimetizza con la carta da parati.
Il suo corpo, dipinto per poi essere fotografato, si mimetizza con la carta da parati. I fiori aiutano: confondono e completano l’immagine donando allo stesso tempo femminilità al muro e riparo alla donna. (Aurora Alma Bartiromo)
