About the Works
Adea Frances Guldi is a San Francisco based emerging artist working in painting and performance art. Her work is based out of two modes; of the body and from the body. Performances are a space of rebellion, protest, cathartic release. The performances act as a vehicle to embrace and transform beauty into pain, and pain into truths about the political nature of the United States. Her paintings also act as a space of cathartic release, using scale and movement to convey ritual and psychic spaces inspired by her background in Buddhism and Yoga.
Her works have been shown in New York, Paris, and California and she is a MFA Candidate at the San Francisco Art Institute.
Adea grew up in New York and received her BA from Naropa University in 2015. She has lived in Paris, Nepal, and across the US. She is very invested in social justice movements and is working hard to make the world a better place.
