Art From Another Dimension

Message Behind Kiara's Works


"My works explore spiritual thinking and imaginative worlds, using bold colors and wavy lines to express those concepts. I let the colors connect with each other and let them dance across the canvas. The forms and shapes are highly exaggerated and appear in abstract form. Many of my works often have human-like beings interacting with landscapes or other beings. These works are dependent on the themes of spirituality, other dimensions/worlds, and essence of the inner self."

About 

Kiara “Aris” Florez is an illustrator who works primarily in acrylics and inks to create her artworks. She explores spiritual thinking and imaginative worlds, using bold colors and wavy lines to express those concepts. Since taking drawing seriously at 16 years old, her works have always aimed to create stories, play with vibrant colors, and develop a unique style. After doing realism in high school, Kiara has taken her works into a more abstract design, adding a deeper personal meaning to it.

Her works are developed through an intuitive process in which she paints the images that appear during her meditations. Sometimes the images appear naturally from music or nature. Many of her works often have human-like beings interacting with landscapes or other beings. Kiara has always been drawn to spirituality, other dimensions/worlds, and the inner self. She feels that her paintings are a way to be in touch with the spiritual side of life.
