Who is Aurora Bueno Celis
Hi and thanks for visiting my page. My Name is Aurora Bueno. I'm a visual artist born in Colombia (South America) and for the past years I've been living in a small city a few hours away from Bogota, in the heart of the Colombian plainlands.
I was born in Santander, the land where the revolt for the independence started in the 1700's where the colonial architecture is still present in the centre of almost each town, with stone roads and wall made of organic elements from the soil. Nowadays the capital is admired for its urbanistic modern appearance.
I studied at the Academy of Fine Arts of Santander, from 1970 to 1974, and started working with sculptures, drawings and paintings.
Then there was a national event summoning artists in Colombia through an art competition, in the times when Fernando Botero was reaching a great international exposure, and the eyes of the art world where gazing at more talented Colombian young artists.
Among more than a hundred artists, my sculptures were selected and awarded with an interesting amount at the time : ) as well as an invitation to participate in an individual exhibition. Once again, in addition to my sculpture, one of my pieces (a conceptual art work) was purchased and both became part of the Museum of Biblioteca Luis Angel Arango (nowadays the permanent art collection owed by Banco de la República (Bogota, Colombia), where you find pieces by Henry Moore, Pablo Picasso, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Marc Chagall, as well as the Maestro Fernando Botero´s donnation.
