Mer del Cielo Profile Photo_2022_v1.jpg

Brief Bio

Mer del Cielo is an artist specializing in paintings that combine oil, acrylic and mixed media.

A native of Argentina, Mer del Cielo headed for New York City while still an adolescent, counting on a short stay.  She ended up remaining for three decades, raising a human, animal and botanical family while working for the United Nations as a specialist on developing countries.

Her experiences in three continents profoundly modified Mer del Cielo's perception of the world and her place in it, becoming the source of an artistic vision that mixes elements of ancestral cultures with her own contemporary sensibility.

Paintings by Mer del Cielo have been exhibited at museums, art fairs and galleries, and acquired by collectors in the U.S., Canada, Argentina, Sweden, Denmark, Portugal and Turkey.
