Original Painting by VIII- Sold. 

I believe beauty is a choice. I enter my work with a strong understanding of color, and yield this tool with boldness, as I choose to portray beauty through the energetic force of light and vivid colors. Other influential aspects of my work revolve around the concept of love interviewing the human experience, as well as inclusion and a genuine connection.

Not only other artists move me and influence what I do. I may carry a loud voice within pop culture and the contemporary art world as an artist because I collect emotional expressions that connects us, honors cultures outside of my own and even transcends the viewers into another reality- a cosmic one at times- with an inviting force.    

The most fascinating truth about choosing beauty in this field, and generally speaking, is the following: 
You already know in your heart what’s beautiful before hearing your neighbor’s opinion. This is important to remember, especially while judging artwork, when buying art, when decorating and creating works of art. 


 Heartwork No 1 by VIII- Sold.

Growing up in the art niche in Mexico, ''the land of abstract art'', and close to her father, a former artist known as Alejandro Martinez, made Valeria the artist she is today.

‘‘I had the opportunity to meet Latin American painters like Segundo Planes, Marcos Huerta and Rafael Calzada on going basis as they remain friends with my father.

Being exposed to artistic projects, late night poetry, conversations and art exhibitions pushed me to become an artist and make art from a very young age.´´

Many artists continue to inspire Valeria to this day. Connecting with the art world is key to VIII, which is why the artist also works with art students throughout the year to publish art blogs about icons and art history in this platform. 


Today Valeria Llamosa continues to work in the art field  with another business endeavor of her own: Print IT Artist Co (Also known as Print IT Company)

Fine art and photography printing services are one side of the business, the other side focuses on sourcing, printing and mounting commercial art for small corporate projects in the Houston area and beyond. 

If you wish to learn more about the artist, or to schedule visit in the studio, please get in touch and she’ll be happy to meet.
