Edinburgh College of Art - University of Edinburgh
Birds are nice is a visual artist and designer working in South FLorida.
The work of Birds are Nice (aka Diane Arrieta) utilizes various printmaking techniques with cut vinyl, illustration, sculpture and animation. The work has a distinct urban feel, with a style rooted in the comic book genre, but also has strong early influences from artist like Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns and Daisy Youngblood.
The work is used as a communication tool for raising awareness of biological concepts related to biodiversity, species loss; habitat degradation and the relationship of these things to human health and well-being. Parallel to the environmental topics, much of the work is based on social-political issues, mainly affecting women and children.
