Margarita van den Berg

Margarita van den Berg, architect and visual artist, is known for her intense use of color, inspired by her natural environment and surroundings. She produces oil and acrylic paintings, mainly abstracts. Her creative process features contemporary artworks made of bright colors and touches of metallic paint with unique details and textures along the surfaces. The result are dramatic and vibrant compositions without predetermination or planned subject and, a distinctive and very recognizable style which evolves constantly, giving the viewer a sense of dynamism and certain degree of freedom, not knowing the exact outcome, making each artwork unique, experimental and difficult to replicate. Her original paintings are privately owned in The Netherlands, Panama City, Panama; El Salvador; Miami, Florida and Charlotte, North Carolina.

She obtained her Architecture Bachelors Degree in the University of Panama, a Master Degree in Urbanism and Architectural Projects in the European University Miguel de Cervantes, Madrid, Spain. She has followed painting courses at Ganexa Art University in Panama; Building and Sustainability, UNAUS, Escola Tècnica Superior d’Arquitectura de Barcelona; Sustainability, TU Delft and Rethink the City. Her Panamanian work experience is based on general architecture, dwellings, offices and store planning. In The Netherlands she did voluntary work at the Vanabbemuseum in Eindhoven.

Since then she has develop over the years a steady art practice in her home studio, mostly privately until 2019. In 2022, she participated in the open call for artists of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Panama and was selected among 20 artists from a total of 101 applications. The museum celebrated its 60th anniversary with the yearly Subasta MAC Panama 2022. Her selected artwork “Volcanic Sense” has been exhibited at this event in the category “Fijaciones”.
