Adeline Buenaventura was born in 1971, Philippines. Orphaned in her early childhood, she had to spent four years in a convent and pursued her high school studies where she also developed her passion with nature. With a change of geographical location after she got married to a French national, She was very much into museum visits while travelling between Paris and Cannes.
Arrived in Paris in 1996, where She studied floral and Ikebana art. During this time with the help of her early exposure to nature in her childhood, she started to work as a florist in Paris and Antibes. Later expatriated to Bangkok, where she has now created her own studio. Self-trained artist, passionate for colours and graphics, inspired by "pop art", Adeline designs, draws, and paints free hand with always bright and eclectic colours on her cheerful sculptures made of resin and fiberglass, and infused with voluptuous roundness and sensual lines with a very elaborate glazed surface, the ultimate originality of her work is also in the amazingly smooth deep aspect of each sculpture, which once finished looks as if it is blown glass or porcelain.
Always seeking to reinvent, experiment, and perfect her careful process, the artist has recently been inspired to explore fluid acrylics and pigments on canvas boards and resin frames with a large palette of colours, to create abstract forms full of movement, with quite a striking result.
Her work catches a lot of attention and become rapidly successful. Adeline Buenaventura’s works are in private collections, are installed in mainly public and private spaces, hotels and architectural spaces in Asia and worldwide, and is being exhibited in many international art fairs and galleries around Asia, Europe and US for the last 7 years.
“I long to bring shining stars in the public’s eyes and to contribute through Art to the universal search for happiness” Adeline.
