Eli Pimentel

Biography

Eli Pimentel was born in Caracas, Venezuela, moved to the United States in 1986 establishing with her family in the Boston area. Making Boston College her alma mater. Eli obtained her Bachelors of Arts degree and was awarded the College's paramount price for artistic excellence. Latter with the University of Syracuse, Eli went to live in Florence, Italy, where she flourished into an accomplished oil painter, this influenced by the rich Florentine art. 

Eli Pimentel currently resides in Caracas, Venezuela, where she continues to evolve. Her art illustrates soothing, splendorous landscapes, deriving from an intense focus on the pointillist style, but with a realistic façade. Eli's brush strokes and colorful palette are often subconsciously a reflection of the turmoil prevalent in her country, through the defragmentation of society and worldly confrontation, yet her message remains 

positive. She presents her canvases charged with nostalgia and makes her concern for the environment evident. By celebrating the breadth of natural treasures, her work strives to remain hopeful that soon she may look forward to a better future. 

Eli has participated in many exhibitions in U.S. cities including Boston, Burlington, New York, Miami, and now St. Petersburg. Italy, Colombia, and Peru, also form part of her exhibition venues.
