"Joy in Colors" paintings by Alexandra Arata

  • Embassy of Argentina 1600 New Hampshire Avenue Northwest Washington, DC 20009 United States (map)

Alexandra Arata’s exhibition “The Joy in Colors“ comes after more than two years of research on the psychology of color and the impact the use of colors have on our emotional well-being. Alexandra has embraced her creative energy to discover the meaning of the 'aesthetics of happiness' and how to surround ourselves with shapes and colors that can increase our motivation and creativity in order to ultimately make us feel better. Using vibrant hues and different techniques when creating her abstract works, the artist invites us to get inspired to live a more colorful life.
