DESCRIPTION:

Parisoma presents:

A colorful exhibition of Iconic city landmarks and downtown buildings by the local artist Patricia Araujo.
Her paintings
pay homage to San Francisco's central city's building facades of both old and new. They're painted individually and some collectively, capturing panoramic views of the South of Market and beyond. Her works speak about the possibility of growth and renewal, and exploring architectural practice as both imagination and reality. A marvelous city that is in constant flux.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Patricia Araujo was born in Miami, Fl, the daughter of Colombian parents, and she grew up in Bogota, Colombia. Since childhood, she’s been enchanted by architecture and form – drawing arches and entrances, and designing imaginary floor plans. After completing high school in Bogota, Araujo moved to Northern California to pursue her college education. She studied architecture, painting, and photography. In 2005 she obtained her second B.F.A in Painting, from the San Francisco Art Institute.

Since the late 1990’s, Patricia Araujo has painted the facades of both iconic city landmarks and downtown buildings. Her paintings depict praiseworthy examples of San Francisco architecture, some utilitarian and others grandly ornamental. She’s been bewildered by the architecture of cities she’s lived and traveled to and by imaginary places. From 2008 to 2010, she dedicated a series of works relating to Tomorrowland and as of most recent she’s devoted to painting the architectural wonders and forgotten treasures of "GGIE" (the Golden Gate International Exposition of 1939 at Treasure Island) – the last World’s Fair of San Francisco Bay. Her interest in researching the urban landscape continues to grow, addressing the evolution and decay within a city. Araujo continues to deepen her conceptual themes on architecture, place and change in the urban landscape.

She has bee
n exhibiting in San Francisco since 1998. Some of the venues exhibited include: Arc Gallery, Arttitud, Bayview Opera House, HANG ART, Roll Up Gallery, STUDIO Gallery, the Old Emporium, Pen Club Gallery in Budapest and most recent at the Old Mint with Treasure Island Museum. In 2008, she published her first book, entitled ”SOMA SEEN”. Her work has been written about in the San Francisco Chronicle, ARTslant, 7×7 SF, Huffington Post, Examiner, Beyondchron, and the San Francisco Bay Guardian. She lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area. To view her complete portfolio and resume online please visit: www.AbstractMetropolis.com
