Once again I have the pleasure of introducing you to a successful woman in the field of art. An artist with capital letters. A tireless person when it comes to achieving her goals.
In love with beauty, María Siro gives us beautiful works and exhibitions from her place of origin, Aguascalientes, México.
As I have told you, I like to show more of the person behind the work, exposing their reality, their vision.
The truth is that the training is also very important, because this broadens our vision and thus we can understand them differently. This are works by the spectacular authors that we present to you at Solkes.
Of course I also leave this as a recommendation. If you are going to an exhibition, do some research on the painter or painters, actors or dancers. This provides another look at the works. And they can do it before or after attending.

She is certainly not sitting waiting for the muse to appear, she takes her inspiration and leads her to the lynch in a continuous work, looking for opportunities to fully indulge in the plastic and visual arts.
General opinion about the works provided by the author
In most of the works that we can see in the photographs that María Siro gave us, we can wrap ourselves in her knowledge with those terrarium colors and see how she unfolds in various techniques with a formed style.
This leads us to think of very natural constructions or buildings, reminding us where we came from and inviting us to dream of other worlds and reflect on our own.
We can fully notice the talent that María Siro possesses and in the background we see the long training that this artist’s paintings entail.
Brief interview with María Siro
When I contacted María and read her profile and observed her images, four questions arose in my mind to get to know María better and reveal her humanity.
The first one that came was for our readers who possibly want to dedicate themselves to the plastic arts and do not know whether to do so or not, since we still have those prejudices that we try to eliminate. I thought about Maria giving them a few words.
Arandy: What would you say to someone who wants to dedicate himself to art?
María Siro: If you want to dedicate yourself to art, it is why you like it, it amazes you, why did you find that something that shouts it at you from within, but it is not an easy path and never doubt yourself, the rest comes in addition, time, work and results.
With her words she refreshed the idea of perseverance and self-assurance. If your desire is to be an artist of any kind, don’t give up. Go for your dream.
I also like to know about the short-term plans of each artist we interview, so that we can support them by spreading their work.
Arandy: Do you have projects in the near future?
María Siro: Yes, at this moment we are about to participate in some calls for object art and painting. And we are also seeking sponsorship for a large-format solo show.
Hopefully, she will achieve these goals and if any of our readers, want to sponsor her , they should do so.
Arandy: Another question that is recurring in my mind is how artists work, how is your creative process? It was the exact question I asked Maria.
María Siro: Well, they are triggers of my environment, or topics that you want to cover, I analyze them, I question myself, I wonder where I want to go with that idea, it is to prepare yourself mentally and emotionally, which I want to show and achieve.
Arandy: what is the best thing about your profession or what do you like the most about being a painter?
María Siro: Painting gives me freedom and makes me feel life. In painting I find a safe place in this world.
Through this last answer we can verify that art is ultimately food for our being, that it offers us an infinite number of proposals to recreate, transform and express ourselves, to know ourselves better, fully enjoy all our feelings and sensations and even create our own world.
Maria is an example for many women who want to venture into the world of fine arts. A woman with talent and preparation who shows us that no matter how many obstacles we find in the way and results are our circumstances, we can achieve our dreams. We always have to work to develop the talent that we carry within.
