Art Love:Olivia Bonilla
I have a serious art crush on this talent!
Olivia Bonilla is an east coast painter and sculptor born in Vermont, currently living in Charleston SC. Bonilla received her BFA in painting, with a minor in sculpture, from Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts studying traditional ideologies. Bonilla continues to focus on unconventional materiality an inventive approach to color theory within sculpture. Cement transforms into the soft and fluffy, Resin to irresistible hard candy. She has participated as a featured artist at the Affordable Art Fair NYC 2019, The Venue Art Hotel in Charleston SC and the Annual City-Wide Open Studios, New Haven CT. in addition to gallery representation Bonilla works with various designers on collaborative projects with features in major publications such as Home Beautiful and Traditional Home. Currently casted for “Making it” a reality TV show with hosts Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman.
Here are her fun works:
The artist states, “The series ‘Pill Box (S, M, T, W, T, F, S)’ is an installation that reflects the ritual of taking daily prescriptions. Each sculpture is a different color representing a different emotion for every day of the week. This is reflective of your natural mood as it shifts from one day to the next. Using cement as my material, I aim to convey the never-ending cupcake in a ‘sugar coated’ reality.” Note: Medical cross mural is not included with purchase but artist can accommodate if client desires.
Are you coveting a cupcake too?
