… of the national drawing contest in 2005. Her first solo show was in 2004 with stone as first material.

She has realized several state commissions in Peru, taught at the Fine Arts School of Ayacucho and PUCP. She has been developing her bronze technique, and exhibiting her sculptures permanently in art galleries.

Mariela tells us that the sculpture is not only shape, but the language the artist chose to communicate and the result of a work of preliminary interiorization on the message which she passes on. The sculpture is a discipline which requires some patience, many hours of work and love. Love for the idea, the work, the message and the unknown person who one day will discover it. This is essential to the success of the work. It can last months between the elaboration of a drawing and the realization of the sculpture. The sculpture is a slow but sure process. All the hours of reflection, maturation, work and given love, make me aware of the value of things, the artist confesses.

Her sculpture is figurative but not realistic; Mariela Garibay observes the world around her and transcribes it with a lot of tenderness through childish characters. The sculpture of Mariela Garibay is positive and generous, it immortalizes a moment of happiness seized by the artist, a peaceful moment, a good memory, a smile, a surprise, a simple and sincere enjoyment.
