Javiera Estrada

Javiera Estrada

Born: 1981

Hometown: Los Angeles

Based in: Los Angeles

Multi-media artist Javiera Estrada was born in Mexico in 1981 and moved to the United States in 1989. Her childhood was heavily influenced by her training in classical piano and violin, which continues to inspire her aesthetic today. She attended Santa Monica College and received her Certificate of Photography in 2009. Estrada’s broad scope of work is a reflection of memories that she has shaped into her reality. A seeker of the spiritual, Estrada believes that every piece of art created is a self-portrait, a physical expression of that inner nameless world our soul inhabits. Using photography as her main visual medium, the sound of the camera's click offers her the perfect confluence between the real and the ethereal. A multifarious artist, Estrada’s creative expression encompasses traditional photography, mixed media, sculpture, installation, and film.

Estrada has exhibited in galleries in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Her work is part of private and corporate collections internationally. In 2014 she won Art Slant’s Juried Competition, was a 2015 finalist for the Emerging Focus Competition, and is the 2017 winner of the ND Awards Fine Art Category. Estrada made her first short film in 2017 entitled, The Dream, which was selected in Best of Shorts at the Carmel International Film Festival. In 2020, her solo show in Las Vegas was awarded a Certificate of Special Congressional Commendation for the Arts from the United States Congress. Estrada currently lives and works in Los Angeles.

More About Javiera Estrada

IconInspires

What inspires you?

Everything: beauty, women, nature, colors, literature, walks, dreams, experiences,

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

When I’m creating work, I try not to let my conscious mind get in the way. It’s not until midway through that I am able to step back from the intensity of inspired creation in order to analyze and discover the context which has been gradually revealing itself. The approach to my work is similar to my own particular self-analysis. The same force which drives my life-the search for meaning and the destruction of invented beliefs- is the same energy being funneled into my work. Psychoanalysis is an essential element: an emotional archaeologist.

IconMagnifying

Timeless. Beauty-driven. Emotive.

What is the most important tool when creating your work?

Inspiration.

IconGive

What is the best piece of advice you have been given?

I tend to be a perfectionist so this was great advice: don't get too precious about the work. Allow yourself to get messy and create "bad" work- mistakes can turn into amazing discoveries.
