Avantia Damberg (Leeuwarden,1977) lives back in Curaçao, where the roots of her family lie. At first born in Friesland, the Netherlands, but she spent most of her childhood and youth in Curaçao, before returning to the Netherlands to continue her studies. After studying marketing management Avantia got accepted to the well known art school ‘Gerrit Rietveld Academie’ where she graduated in 2007 in Audiovisual Arts. Today she enthousiasticly is part of the Caribbean art scene.

Avantia Damberg works multidisciplinary and expresses herself in drawings, collages, video,
animation and land-art installations. She finds her subjects most of the time in her inner world, but
also objects of the external world play a major role. Typography reoccur in her works as she loves
text in combination with visuals. Also the combination of travel and artistic activity is a way that
sharpens her creative mind. She is happy to share her views of faith, experiences and her sense of humor in the form of site-specific installations especially when the public is reflected back or their participation ís part of the work. Read Less
