Marta Gottfried Wiley Art Prints
Marta Wiley's art is as colorful, captivating and varied as the artist herself. Born in Mexico City, Wiley is of European and Cherokee descent. As a child, she had a wild streak that her grandmother, also an artist, helped channel into the fine arts. Fifty-foot leaps into deep canals translated well for Wiley; that is quite apparent from the kinetic qualities in her art. Time and maturity have not stilled the childhood energy and verve of this artist. Wiley's passions run as deeply and soulfully as her dignified figurative creations.
Wiley's spiritual quest and intense concern for the environment have led her to several avenues of expression. As well as an artist, Wiley is a gifted singer and songwriter. Her inspirations include the mystical films of Maya Daren and the writings of Carlos Casteneda, as well as the art of Sargent, Munch, and Kollwitz.
