Yolanda Velasquez is a Colombian born artist whose work reflects scenes from her native country and Asia, where she has lived for the last 6 years. Initiated in fine arts at renowned Colombian artist David Manzur’s academy, Yolanda followed her training with studies in industrial design, drawing and watercolor. She mixes acrylic and oil on her paintings to capture the beauty and motion of real life working people using the texture, richness and strength of both mediums.
Although her work is limited in number, her paintings are already housed in private collections in the UK, Norway, Brazil, Colombia and the US.
