I am Milixa Morón a Venezuelan realist painter. I was born in 1977 and my interest in drawing and painting began early. Through all my
childhood I attended painting classes until my secondary school.

After graduated, in 1994 I enrolled to the Design Institute of Valencia where studied Graphic Design, when finishing it travelled to London
where studied English for a year. Being there, I followed a course at the Camberwell College of Art and visited many art museums and
exhibitions which inspired me and drove me to dedicate totally to painting. In 2000 few months after I returned to my home country, I
enrolled to the Giovanni Battista Scalabrini Academy of Art, where I received the basics knowledge in the great traditions of western art and
also had the opportunity to work for few months at the studio of the director, the artist Francesco Santoro.

In the summer of 2006 I went to the Academy of Realist Art (ARA) in Toronto-Canada where I did few workshops as well as the first level
of the programme.
At the beginning of 2007 I enrolled at the Angel Academy of Art in Florence-Italy where I finished my studies. Inmediately after in January
2010 I found an studio in a community called ArtSpace (for 2 years) where many artists had their own studio also; then for one more year I
moved having my own studio together with my husband that is an artist too
(the artist Elkin Cañas) where we painted and taught, and at the
same time I was following the programme "La scuola libera del nudo" at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze.

August 2013 we moved to Miami-USA. We founded an academy called
Chiaroscuro Studio of Art. Today we paint and teach there.
During all these years I have participated in various salons, competitions and exhibitions in different countries, like the ARC salon competition
in USA and Figurativas in Barcelona-Spain; and won some prizes and honorable mentions.

I am a realist painter, devoted to the resurgence and preservation of representational painting in art.
I have a wide range of sources of inspiration, mostly are mythology of different cults, religions or cultures, universal symbols, universal
believes with I could agree with or don't, psychological behavior, stories or people from history that left us an important reflection or thought,
I drive to paint this kind of themes not only because I like them but also because I love the feeling they transmit to me, for a while I become
them, I feel their knowledge, their pain or agony, their power, their mystery.

I love the creation of painting, how they become alive as you work on them and am working to create an unforgettable iconic image whose
narrative and gaze transcend time, location, gender, culture, ethnicity, predisposition and the like.
Being inspired by all these, I love painting different forms, colors, values and textures.
Always my still life have some meaning; and representing figures and portraits I do my best to capture the personality of the sitter.
