Kéren Viegas – “Art points to the Artist”

Please, tell us a little about yourself…

My name is Kéren Viegas I was born in Pelotas / RS. I majored in visual arts, pedagogy and I did a postgraduate degree in special education and psychopedagogy.


When your desire to be an artist awakened?

The desire to learn more about visual arts aroused in me, during my twin pregnancy, I discovered how relaxing it was to paint on canvas, while listening to music and praying.

What kind of art do you like best?

I always liked pop art, contemporary art, when I was a teacher it was the styles I liked the most, because it drew attention to the creative way, colorful, to express.

How did you develop your style (techniques)?

When I started to paint, when choosing paints, techniques I saw that I identified with vibrant colors, and creative style when communicating. I identified myself when expressing my feelings, and interact with people, creatively and cheerfully.

Mention if you had artistic influences on your work and which artists?

I love works by Salvador Dalí, e Andy Warhol, some artists who do graffiti like the Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra, and Spanish artist Aryz.

Do you have a family member or acquaintance who is an artist??

In my family there are some artists, musicians, writers and visual artists.

Living from art is possible?

I think so, the walk may not be easy, but I believe so.

Have you ever thought about not acting with art anymore?? Can you comment why??

Yes! I've thought about giving up painting canvases, out of insecurity, because I didn't think I would be able to communicate through my works.

What skills are needed today for the artist?

I believe we always have something to learn, improve ourselves in drawing techniques and various materials, culture…

What do you feel when you create or appreciate a work of art?

I feel a lot of joy when enjoying them, and manage to put on screen what was inside my head, express my feelings.

Your inspirations to create a work of art?

My inspirations are my experiences, My faith, experience with different people and cultures…

What art impressed you the most so far??

Practically all the works of the artist Eduardo Kobra, I'm in love.

Do you always have to be creating or only create at certain times?

I create works when something marks my story, where I believe it helps people to reflect on the subject as well.

Is your work product unique or closely or distantly related to your previous work?

Depends on, some are inspired by previous works of mine, and others created in times.

How the visual arts can contribute to education and culture?

I believe that the artist's challenge in the current scenario, is to encourage people to be interested in reflecting on issues and culture, that often go unnoticed.

How do you analyze the qualities of a work of art?

The criteria for stimulating a work of art, I believe the time, the chosen materials.

Talk about your projects today…

I believe there will be many projects and exhibitions by many places, it will be a pleasure to tell a little of my story and how art has transformed me.

What is your advice for someone just starting out??

The message I would like to share with those just starting out is to not give up.!

Don't give up studying, to learn more about techniques and culture, don't give up putting your feelings into action, don't give up publicizing your work and expressing yourself, there will always be someone needing to hear what you have to say.

About your exhibitions, do you have any comments about them, feelings…

I believe that screens are reminders in environments, every time we pass by them we remember our purpose, dreams... we remember why she was there.

We know our words have power, and one of the best ways to express ourselves is to transfer our words and feelings to canvas.

I believe we will have some exhibitions in Chile, Argentina, Brasil, Europe.

Could you comment on some artistic curiosity?

An artistic curiosity of mine is that before I start any work, I pray to ask for God's direction, asking for creativity, direction… It is God who has taught me more and more to put my experiences and messages on screens for many people to reflect on. Nothing like taking a class with the great art teacher, right??

How would you define your art in one line?

I can say that the Subject would be: Art points to the Artist.
