Biographies: Ketty Violo

Born in Venezuela in 1952, travels to Italy at a very early age and returns again to the country at the beginning of the 70’s. Soon after,her main objectiveis focused on the world of human relations, absorbing this science through different activities, in the entrepreneurial world as much as in government institutions. And thus, she moves towards Art as her ultimate goal.

Since her young years, her life has been ruled by very firm spiritual patterns andis initiated in diverse movements and philosophies. From hidden lamaseries in the Swiss Alps, to Scientology, philosophy created and impulsed by L.Ronald Hubbard.

This early spiritual vision, along with the desire of adventure in both the Old and the New World, the sharing of the force of the Latin-American nature and the European tradition (Violo was raised within the magical world of Barlovento and the daily observation of the works of Giotto or feeding the ducks in the garden of Galileo Galilei’s observatory) inspired in her a close and deep relationship with Art.

From 1990, her interest lies on the manufacture of paper as an artistic resource, developing a language of abstraction that has been enriching itself with the support of different elements, technologies and continuous research.

In 1998 she received the AGPA (ArtesGráficasPanamericanas) recognition, sponsored by TAGA (Taller de ArtistasGráficosAsociados/Luisa Palacios) and Smurfit of Venezuela.In 2001 she was given an honorific mention at the I Salón de Arte/Exxon Mobil de Venezuela, in the MuseoSacro de Caracas.
