Studio 4- Coco Salinas

“I paint different topics and find myself in the art. To me the world is art and we are all artists,” Coco Salinas said “All nature, people, the beauty of the human face, abstract and figurative, everything is art, everything is beautiful and everything can be translated onto a canvas. My wish is to help others find themselves through art.”

Coco Salinas has a passion for Art. She aims to capture the beauty of the simple things with a stroke of the paint brush. The abstract objects, the freshness of a fruit, the hidden beauty of an old tree but mostly her work convey an emotion to be captured by sitting, observing and drinking some coffee, tea or wine, as someone would do with a great friend. Ms. Salinas is currently accepting applications for new student. As a teacher, Coco offers, no intention to change the students’ world view, but offers advice through her own artwork. Art is her business, her passion, her dream. Art is the window into her world.

Doko Casual Art by Dania Olivares

As she looked down at the line that would seal the deal, she just couldn’t bring herself to do it. With a heart dedicated to art, she pushed the offer away and decided to follow her life-long dream and passion.

Two years later she’s going full speed ahead with Doko Casual Art, working out of the Incubator at 601 N. Main St. in downtown McAllen.

She currently has artwork placed in restaurants Roosevelt’s in downtown McAllen and Sabor Amor on Shary Road near Military Highway. She’s also received invitations to showings in Houston and Austin. “Many people have told me I am lucky but I don’t think so,” Dania said. “I work a lot. I search, I do research, I look for opportunities – that’s how things happen.”

Dania will have her 2013 annual exhibition at the Creative Incubator on Saturday, March 9th from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm; with the help of the McAllen Chamber of Commerce the Incubator at McAllen open its door for the public to enjoy her work and talent.

“Olivares’s paintings are comprised of up to a dozen layers of this unique combination of materials. The artist’s vibrant colors pop from beneath a gem-like. This stunning finish supports the philosophy she wishes to convey.” Ivan Gonzalez said Cultural Arts Director from the McAllen Chamber of Commerce.
