DIVA COLLECTION

Artist Statement

To find my identity is one of the struggles that I face in my journey throughout life. Things like education, family, money, politics, religion, and sex; all these topics have affected my life and artwork. It helps to define who we are, but, our nature is complex and should not be a label for the social need to blend in or to look for acceptance.

The Diva attitude is knowing our particular value without looking for approval.

Simple things like shapes and colors have unconscious meanings in which I’m able to connect with my audience. Then, there are the characters that I chose to portray, always with a deep sense of admiration and respect for what they do or who they are.

Growing up I was always inspired by the human figure: superheroes, portraiture, nudes, and sculptures. From the classical Greek and Roman period to the masters of Renaissance, Neoclassic art, and finally Pop-art and comic books.

In a way, I’m still representing the same old gods from Western culture that other artists portray before me. The “new gods” we follow in media, magazines, movies, music, and TV.

I always admired beauty, but not only in the obvious stereotype. I could find beauty in the oddest of subjects. Color, lines, composition, and style are important things to consider when I chose an image or character to portray.

As year past by, I had learned to love myself. I have found my inner voice. I can see now that the best way to live my life is to accept that what makes us equal is that we are all different.
