Adeline Buenaventura’s sculptures are vibrant, fun, yet sturdy. Constructed from a mixture of fiberglass and resin then reinforced with marble powder, the finished works are coated with high-gloss marine varnish, providing the sculptures a finish often mistaken for glass or glazed porcelain. Her works come in a few designs, with new additions introduced from time to time.

Adeline Buenaventura is a self-taught mixed media artist, with a passion for colours and graphics, and is greatly inspired by the pop art milieu. Her fiberglass- and marble powder-reinforced resin sculptures are finished free hand, with always fun, bright and eclectic colors, infused with voluptuous roundness and sensual lines, and look more like they have been created from blown glass or porcelain.

Her subjects are derived from nature, an affinity for which she developed since she was young and reinforced by her time living in France where Adeline studied Ikebana flower arrangement and worked as a florist.

She once again relocated, this time to Bangkok, in 2011 where she co-founded PAJ Art Studio with her ex-husband, with whom she co-created several sculptures under the name Artheline. The highlight of this artistic collaboration was in 2015, with a major installation at the Fullerton Hotel in Singapore, where 40 of their Hippop’Art sculptures and a life-size Whale Pop sculpture adorned the hotel grounds.

In 2016 Adeline started her own studio, Buenaventura Art Gallery, in Bangkok where she currently lives and works. Her most recent creations include Jungle Pop Elephant and Jungle Pop Panda sculpture collections, plus abstract and Pop Art paintings.

Her most recent success was in 2019 when her Jungle Pop Panda collection was selected and showcased at the 7th Ras Al Khaimah Fine Art Festival in the United Arab Emirates, where it won 1st Prize in the sculpture category. The sculpture was exhibited at the National Museum of Ras Al Khaimah in February 2019.

Her work catches a lot of attention and has become immensely successful. Adeline Buenaventura’s works are in private collections, installed in many public and private spaces, hotels and architectural spaces in Asia and in other places around the world. The have also been widely exhibited in international art fairs and galleries around Asia, Europe and US in the last 7 years..

I long to bring shining stars in the public’s eyes and to contribute through Art to the universal search for happiness
