HRESULA BENTSEN

A lifetime of art immersion has led Hresula Bentsen to the age-old technique of mosaics. Her Greek heritage led her to Greece and the mosaic icons and floor patterns immediately struck a chord with her. In 2009 she took a class on the technique of mosaic art and became hooked. Forming a contemporary twist on an ancient art form, she employs a strong color palette to create fluid movement and flow in her pieces, whether they are large scale murals, wall hangings or free standing sculptures. Her key influences are modern painting, a profound connection to her natural surroundings and light, a color palette of the 60’s and primitive and other non-Western cultures. Based full time in Loreto, Baja California Sur, her work is constantly evolving as all art does in time. The long history of mosaic art in Mexico is also a constant inspiration and influence in her work.
