Pia Chavarria is a visual artist born and based in Costa Rica. Her work surrounds the constant representation of the human body through painting and drawing which depict characters in unknown interactions and situations within themselves and each other. Chavarria’s use of vague, hazy color and stains with frantic scribbles and brushwork help to speculate about the characters identities, relationships, sexuality and context.
She has a Licentiate degree in plastic design with an emphasis on pictorial design from the University of Costa Rica. She has had solo and group exhibitions in physical and online spaces like “La Salita” in NYC; “Media home” in Buenos Aires, Argentina; “Nos Vemos” in San Jose, Costa Rica; the “Costarican Museum of Arts”; the “Second Festival of Performance Arts” in Amapala, Honduras; and the 2021 Hoper Prize Grant finalist.
