About the artist
"Colombian painter and sculptress (1986). Currently lives and works in Barcelona. Although her education led to Political Science at the University of Barcelona, influenced by the political situation she grew up to in her country of origin, plastic creativity has accompanied her since her childhood, drawing fantastic characters and animals from her imagination and using the color as a means of expressing their own emotions. From her early works she has always focused on making portraits, characterized by the use of strong lines and geometric figures.
Towards the year 2000, she began to develop the style that today characterizes and differentiates her works: a mixture between illustration and naïve fine art. Her use of color continues to be a key element in her compositions and the naive style of his figures, despite the strong themes that he often touches, appeals to tenderness and humor, instruments that she uses through symbolism and that create ties of empathy with the viewers.
The portraits of Daniela are intended to capture stories and situations of collectives that usually do not have opportunities to express themselves in freedom or that are in situations of incoherence of life experience, between thinking, feeling and doing.
For this reason, most of their characters lack tools for expression and / or action, such as mouth, hands and feet."
