Macia Salas
(b.1967, San Jose, Costa Rica)

Marcia Salas studied printmaking and etching at the University of Costa Rica. She has had fifteen individual exhibitions and participated in 65 collectives in Costa Rica as well as Italy, Japan, Honduras and Germany.
Salas celebrates form and movement, often humorously. Her subjects are represented in acrylic paintings of stylized images with bold colors or in sensitive intaglio and wood prints. A series of life-size etchings of female forms won the young artist a place in the national museum, Museo de Arte Costarricense.
She has also won nine national awards and three awards on an international level.
