The painter Adriana De Villa (Mexico City, 1974),  does not focus her interest in bucolic landscapes, abstractionism or nudes; however, through her paintings she undresses the city, not showing it through its facades, drawing its structures, pipes and drainage. The painter disrobes the city's soul: its inhabitants, who give it its real life.

The city soul, as the whole of the souls, has secrets and chiaroscuros. With her artwork, De Villa reveals us the very depth places, the faces and the thoughts of those who anxious go to work and sorrowful return to their homes, the unemployees that hide themselves among the crowd, the lonely people that choose a nook to let their thoughts and dreams run riot and those that smile or love someone, that the painter, curious and indiscreet, understands and shares with the spectator.

Adriana's work merges the human being into the urban scenes, in a subtle abstraction, rediscovering for us an astonishing new landscape: that one in which we are immersed and not able to see through the veil of everyday. The painter creates art with those scenes that go by before our eyes and we do not notice because of the wish of being in somewhere else.

De Villa's art work has been exhibited both in solo and group shows in Mexico City; Los Angeles, CA; New York City and Bulgary, achieving more than 30 exhibitions.
