Valeria Feliú was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1970. From an early age she developed an interest in the creative and artistic fields, attending various workshops and pursuing personal projects within ceramics, drawing, painting, and photography.
While studying a Visual Communication degree, she attended the workshops of a renowned Argentine painter, Adolfo Nigro, under Torres García's “universal constructivism” art movement.
In the early 90's she moved to Sydney, Australia where she studied interior design and worked in the architectural and design field. In parallel, she developed her artistic career, mainly in an abstract style, participating in various individual and group shows, art fairs and competitions.
Valeria returned to Argentina to Salta in 1998. She is currently dedicated full-time to being a fine art painter - focusing her interest in realism – not to say reality – and the human condition with its vast invitation to explore and represent.
