Artist Statement

My paintings seek to express

that intimately perceptible life force within.

It draws me in, whether I find it in the miracle of nature,

or simply in everyday objects.

The strength hidden in the changing, complex and fragile reality

is my muse.


I strive to have my art convey that sense of beauty

and energetic harmony that I experience.



Bibiana Vidal Curell was born in Argentina, moving to Belgium with her family as a teenager. After graduating from High School in Brussels, she traveled across Europe
It was during these years that painting evolved into the great passion for Bibiana that it is today.

Vidal Curell obtained her University Degree in Sociology, while living as a nun, and began working in social work. She participated in several prominent artistic workshops in Buenos Aires.

Bibiana found herself working in Social Services and living in different provinces. This afforded her the opportunity to sketch and paint a variety of plein air rural scenes and landscapes.
During this time she continued to travel to Italy, Greece, Israel and Republic of Turkey.

In search of new horizons, during h
er stay in Belgium and Russia, she studied Art History and the Russian masters. This became the seminal moment in Bibiana's life - she decided to become a full-time artist. The spark that she had nurtured for so long burst into a roaring fire.

In 2000 Bibiana had her first solo exhibition in a professional gallery and received her first recognition as a professional artist.

In 2002, she visited New York consuming the masterworks in the Metropolitan and Guggenheim Museums, and the Frick Collection.

In 2006, Bibiana left her beloved Argentina and Canada became her home.

Her paintings, primarily oil on canvas, are filled with light and intend to express the spiritual energy that emanates through the effect of light on the s
ubject.  More than 200 of Bibiana's works are in private collections in Argentina, Canada, France, Belgium, Spain and the United States.
