Growing up in the mountains of Santiago, Chile, abstract artist María Jose Benvenuto moved to Australia in 2018. Migrating from the crowded streets and busy atmosphere to the quiet and calming aspects of the Northern Beaches in Sydney, led to a reconnection with nature in an entirely new way. Using gestural brushstrokes or stains across the medium, Benvenuto focuses on line and detail to build a narration of the life around her. For the bedding “The View” she was inspired by the beautiful and calm waters of Manly, her favorite place to connect with nature. Living there disconnected from the city, helps her to live a balance and calm life with her family and art.
