About Avantia Damberg
Avantia Damberg (1977) was born in Leeuwarden, in the north of the Netherlands.
Avantia is a conceptual artist. She is always exploring, searching for beauty and quality, in a very playful way. “People on Curacao seem to have different expectations when it comes to art. The majority seems to expect something beautiful and realistic, painted in bright colors, but I like to break through these barriers. Stimulate people with different concepts. Hold a mirror up to them hopeful that they will recognize themselves.
Avantia believes that art can put people on a different track. Religion is an important source of inspiration to her. She was raised according to evangelical beliefs, with a broad interest in bible studies and she always tries to express her faith in her art.
