Milagros Pongo is a contemporary artist based in Florida. She studied art with Porfirio Bustos in Asunción, Paraguay and at The Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes in Mexico. Additional studies in feng shui and chromotherapy also influence her practice. Pongo has been exhibiting her work in both individual and group shows for more than three decades. These include international venues in countries such as South Africa, Korea, Italy, Brazil, Turkey, and the United States. Most notably, one of Pongo’s paintings has been exhibited in the Vatican Museum.
Her technique uses oil and acrylic paint, Judea oils, lavender, CBD, charcoal, ink, and texturing mediums. In Pongo’s visual compositions, the Incan, Celtic and Toltec cultures stand out, as well as thoughts and symbols of ancestral shamanic cultures with a whirlwind of vibrant colors. Her work highlights the colors and symbols that attract positive energy and emotional balance with strokes that encourage you to work hard for your goals and dreams.
