Angella Holguin was born in Mexico City in 1981. She ventured into the plastic arts leaving her job as a graduate in International Commerce. Her first works transformed her life, initiating the concept of transformation in her works. She has an MFA in Sculpture from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California.
Being her father her miner, as a child she lived far from towns and cities between rivers and mountains, arising in her her love for open spaces, the desire to interact with all audiences and her admiration for nature . Her love for metal led her to specialize in it. Her use of various materials in a single work enriches her concept of transformative processes as we see in several of her pieces, as well as in her public work Sublimation made with glass and steel.
In 2017 she received a commission from the state of Querétaro to create a public sculpture as state heritage which she names Responsum. In 2020-2021 she works her In Vino Veritás monumental sculpture in carbon steel and quarry, made for the Cheese and Wine Art Route. The Ida Medicis Gallery, Paris, is her current representative in France where she exhibited individually in 2019 and collectively in 2021 with the French painter Delphine Piard.
Her first casting was a woman lying in a fetal position symbolizing a new starting point in her life; a renaissance. Her works have evolved from figurative representations to organic abstract forms; Her concept of being inspired by the Mesoamerican ideology of life cycles of transmutations and rebirths is now directed towards nature, its processes of life and transformation. The evolution of Angella's work is a reflection of her own cycles of internal transformation. Her work is her biography.
