Shura Oyarce, a remarkable artist hailing from Lima, has a unique mission in the world of art: to capture the ungraspable, render the invisible visible, and give “a voice to silence.” Renowned critic, journalist, and sociologist Alberto Pellegrino beautifully sums up her work.
Her art invites observers into a world of chromatic and fantastical forms, often evoking memories of childhood. It’s an art that emerges from the depths, bringing forth impulses and emotions that resist easy rationalization.
Shura Oyarce Yuzzelli, born in Lima and an architecture graduate from the University of Florence, has a multifaceted career. Besides being an artist, she’s a professor of Art History. Her artistic journey has taken her to exhibitions across Italy, Peru, Slovenia, Russia, Turkey, Romania, and France.
Currently, Shura wears two hats – that of an architect and an artist. Her studio-atelier in San Severino Marche is a hub of creativity where she explores various mediums, including cement, acrylics, collage, and reclaimed fabrics, transforming them into something entirely new.
Her art has found its place in both private and public collections, including the Peruvian Embassy in Rome, Cif di Macerata, Sferisterio di Macerata, Erzican University in Turkey, and the Duomo San Ginesio.
Shura Oyarce’s art is more than just a visual experience; it’s a journey into the unseen, an exploration of the ineffable, and a celebration of the power of artistic expression to give life to the silent and the hidden.
