Art of Patricia Ariel
Patricia was born in 1970 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where she lived and worked until moving to the United States. Although part self-taught, she has had some formal instruction in visual arts that included traditional drawing training and fashion design. Besides drawing and painting, Patricia has expressed herself since early age through different artistic languages like theater, dance, and music. Her decision to become a professional fine artist came only later, after leaving her homeland. Inspired by the aesthetics of the turn of the century and sacred art of different paths, Patricia’s art is strongly influenced by her spirituality and insights about the connections of men with nature and magic and the spiritual/psychic dimensions.
