About The Artist

Irene Bledel

Oil Painter

Robbed From Within: My Story Irene Bledel is the driving force behind each painting – a book still to be written. The challenges and experiences – Robbed From Within - that have woven the "Distant Sunset"tapestry of my life have taught me to learn how to appreciate the beauty of life and the power of our surroundings, inspiring positive visions that come to life on a canvas. I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

My journey has taken me to four continents and many beautiful images that bring brilliance to my artistic and untrained written and art expression. I know, I expect and thrive by closing my eyes that in a millisecond my lenses have captured a"Ultimate Betrayal" moment of peace and beauty in the parameters of my mind.

The brilliant writers of the Generation of ’98 and their impact on the Impressionistic Movement on art became a part of my literary, art focus and me. Integration of the ‘Inner I’, ‘The Self’, ‘Natural True Life’, and the freedom of my hand and soul impregnate the images I create within my writings and expressed on each blank virgin canvas. I manipulate my thoughts through the untainted oils to create with each stroke of my hand the moment my eye captured the vision in my soul. My art is an inner and private extension of myself.
