Adeline Buenaventura was born in 1971, Philippines.
Orphaned in her early childhood, she had to spent four years in a convent and pursued her high school studies where she also developed her passion with nature. With a change of geographical location after she got married to a French national, She was very much into museum visits while travelling between Paris and Cannes
Arrived in Paris in 1996, where She studied floral and Ikebana art.
During this time with the help of her early exposure to nature in her childhood, she started to work as a florist in Paris and Antibes. Later expatriated to Bangkok, where she has now created her own studio.
Self-trained artist, passionate for colours and graphics, inspired by "pop art", Adeline designs, draws, and paints free hand with always bright and eclectic colours on her cheerful sculptures made of resin and fiberglass, and infused with voluptuous roundness and sensual lines with a very elaborate glazed surface, the ultimate originality of her work is also in the amazingly smooth deep aspect of each sculpture, which once finished looks as if it is blown glass or porcelain.
Always seeking to reinvent, experiment, and perfect her careful process, the artist has recently been inspired to explore fluid acrylics and pigments on canvas boards and resin frames with a large palette of colours, to create abstract forms full of movement, with quite a striking result.
Her work catches a lot of attention and become rapidly successful. Adeline Buenaventura’s works are in private collections, are installed in mainly public and private spaces, hotels and architectural spaces in Asia and worldwide, and is being exhibited in many international art fairs and galleries around Asia, Europe and US for 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” Adeline.
I am a passionate artist for colours and graphics inspired by “pop art” I design, draws and paint free hand with always bright and eclectic colours on my cheerful sculptures made of resin, fiberglass and marble powder, the forms are infused with voluptuous gentle roundness and sensual lines, with a very elaborate glazed surface, the ultimate originality of my work is also in the amazingly smooth deep aspect of each sculpture which once finished looks as it is blown glass or porcelain.
The idea and inspirations of my sculptures are to work on the roundness and character of the sculpture. Initially, the shapes were fairly simple with the particularity of being round and generous with clean lines, colorful, expressive bodies and little or no relief in the face with very balanced proportions. And turn this into something lovely, attractive, colorful, happy and touchable. Then paint these shapes with bright colors and more to give them the gaiety, beauty, personality and a certain energy associated with each of the colours and their graphics combination.
I am pleased to present the Jungle pop collections.

My creations have always triggered a joyous emotional reaction for people who look, whatever their age, their origin, their culture and their sex. This reaction is part of the creation of the work, it is intentional when I realise the pieces. I intend for people who see the works to want to take pleasure by sight and touch, to take the pieces in their hands, see them in their arms or even to sit on them as is the case of the Hippos’ or Whale pop of larger sizes which are made to withstand the pressure despite their lightness. I want children to appreciate my sculptures and love them without the frustration of not being able to touch them.
My works purposefully provide joy, pleasure, amusement, cheerfulness and optimism to all who look at and touch them.
It will be a great privilege and a huge opportunity to be a part of Artrooms Roma great event and to showcase my artwork to the Italian audience, to speak about my work and share happiness with my art. It is a huge compliment and exposure for me as artist. I hope this exhibit will open more doors of opportunities for me as an artist. It will be a continuation to my growing data base in Italy. I hope you can consider my participation. Thank you very much.
