Born in Chihuahua, Chihuahua, Mexico, full-time graphic designer Magda Bowen became interested in art at a very early age. As a child she would spend long hours drawing, lost in a world of her own. A self-taught painter, one of her most favorite themes is Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead. Her vivid style of realism is seen in her loose, physical brushwork. Her bright bizarre colors and dramatic, fantastical images reflect an inspiration from native Mexican art.

Her fierce spirit and energy are captured in her intensely brilliant yellows, oranges, with greens, and chilling blues. Her paintings are a celebration of life and heritage. Artists Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Vincent Van Gogh, and Paul Gauguin influence her. Her work is published in “Chicano Art For Our Millennium” 2004 and “Triumph Of Our Communities” 2005 Bilingual Press. She was also featured in New Mexico Magazine November 2009 issue. She attended college in Austin, Texas and earned a degree in Commercial Art.

Being self-taught, my paintings are ”work in progress”. As an artist, I feel my pieces are never completed. I always see flaws in my art. I stop working on a particular piece when I get a true feeling of accomplishment. I choose to display “my work in progress” as is, with all its defects.
