Claudia Echeverria is a Venezuelan-born artist living in Miami, Florida. Known as CLoD in the art world, her flashy work is inspired by everyday life, people, relationships and all that is truth. Often painting as a child, CLoD possessed a creative fire, but it wasn’t until she found herself in a dead end corporate career that she took her love for art from hobby to profession.
“Working as a TV producer somehow didn’t make sense anymore, it didn’t feed my soul”, CLoD said. “So I quit my job, left for a solo trip around the world for a year, and decided to live the rest of my life with integrity to my passion, creating in an almost obsessed way.”
A significant influence that molded the mind of CLoD came as a result of traveling to more than 50 countries, immersing solo in diverse cultures, recognizing our differences as societies and discovering her perception of the simplicity of human essence, which does not change anywhere.
“The way we behave as humans is a huge inspiration for my work. My intention with these creatures is to serve as a mirror, to whatever moves you”, she said. “I create beautiful pieces that speak”.
CLoD has sold pieces to collectors in Milan, Croatia, Spain, Portugal, Iceland, Austria, Mexico, Central and South America, participated in collectives, donated work to major charities, done solo exhibitions and most recently won “Best in Show” at Coral Spring Museum juried competition in February 2019- where she will soon have her first solo museum exhibit in 2020.
