Katia Miranda is a Salvadoran contemporary visual artist that resides in Guatemala. With a background in classic and contemporary dance, Miranda developed a love for music, light and movement. This has been a strong influence in her hyperrealism oil paintings. In her latest works Wrappings, she believes that movement draws on space, enveloping the body and generating shapes; because everything in life, even ourselves, comes in wrappers and layers. Miranda is powerfully attracted to this mania of ours to envelope most things in our lives: to protect, but more speciﬁcally, to conceal. She has participated in many solo and collective exhibitions in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Colombia.
