I live by the art   - אני גר אמנות  -  yo vivo el arte

I want confidants, not only clients !

My name is Matilde Cánepa González,

I am a visual artist born in Caracas-Venezuela and I studied art at the Cristobal Rojas School of Fine Arts in Caracas.  I continued my art studies in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) and Buenos Aires (Argentina) in different techniques.

I lived for a long time in Tenerife, Spain, but today I have my studio in Berlin.

My intention is to create sculptures and paintings, but also visual installations. I also write poetry reflecting on art, education and the creative process.



As a multidisciplinary artist, I have been developing my sculptures, paintings and artbooks for more than 20 years. For my sculptures I use different supports and materials in which I like to integrate reliefs, textures, calligraphy and symbols that have emerged from a syncretic language. 


I also understand art as a form of therapy in which the creativity and integrity of the individual can be fostered. To this end, I have developed various courses, which I have already designed and practised for special groups of children, migrants, the disabled.


I offer courses in creative painting and sculptural ceramics.

Creativity as an inexhaustible source for expression, play and therapy, towards human growth and the connection of social, intercultural sensitivity and the integration of individual potentials.


This also includes the guidance of teachers and educators, and all other groups of people involved in the support of adults and children.



My goal is to continue to develop in a constant creative process.
