oil on canvas
On July 11, 1968, Rosa Canto was born in Alcoy, Alicante (Spain). Her artistic studies began at the Fine Arts School in Alcoy. Later she continued her education in Valencia at the San Carlos Fine Arts University. Through hard work she has achieved merited success. Her favored subjects are landscapes, which she shapes on her canvases, infusing them with the great flavor and character of her native country. Forgetting the romanticism often seen, she looks for the nature and realism in her subjects. She takes a visual picture of fields full of brilliantly colored flowers or serene Spanish villages. Her goal is to be set apart from the traditional subjects of the artists from her region, by always portraying her homeland from her personal point of view. Rosa Canto paints as she feels and she does not dwell upon the perfection of each stroke. She considers her work to be a journey, one that gets better with each piece that she paints. Rosa Canto is a young artist and, therefore, has not participated in many exhibitions. However, her work can be found in private collections in Spain and Internationally.
