Maria Pia Mosquera 

b. 1977 Bogotá, Colombia 

I’m a Colombian-born artist and designer, based in Sydney, Australia. Currently I’m exploring our ambiguous relationship with death through paintings that challenge the macabre with wry humour, using the pervasive religious symbolism of Hispanic culture to bring the otherworldly into the everyday.

I studied art at Julian Ashton School in Sydney and Academia Fabula in Bogotá, Colombia. I’m a graduate of graphic design and illustration from the University of Canberra. I work predominantly as an exhibition designer, some my clients include National Portrait Gallery, House of the Arts (HOTA), Chau Chak Wing Museum, Powerhouse Museum, and the City of Sydney.

Marvelous Dark Artist's Book

“Dark Art Movement” Book excerpt

Is an art movement resorted to by artists who prefer to express their thoughts and feelings in mysterious ways. In this field of art, artists provide us the opportunity to observe those thoughts that we don't like to think about in our daily lives from a different point of view. This mysterious place is a little dark, a little twisted but it has a magnetic aura that draws us in.
