Acrylic on Paper by Karen Bravo
With 50cm, Height 70cm & Depth
I am a multidisciplinary artist from Colombia. My work is feminine and self-explorative. I use mixed media techniques to represent black women and women of colour, the shape of their bodies, their hair, and their style, highlighting their connection with nature and spirituality and representing their beauty, strength, and vulnerability.
My work aims to be a tool for empowerment, building self-acceptance and confidence. Part of my creative process and outcome have been shaped by the constant necessity to reconnect with my roots. Being far away from home had encouraged me to explore different art forms, and create a sense of belonging through dance and movement, giving me inspiration for my visual work, and helping me to preserve my culture and identity.
