Diana Rosa Bio

As a visual artist, Diana Rosa takes inspirations from an alternative upbringing where she closely connected with the natural landscape around her. Born and raised in Cuba shaped her perspective on nature and how humans interact with land, animals and each other.  Now living in an urban environment in Brampton, Ontario, Canada,   Diana aims to show our relationship to the world around us through the versatile medium of acrylic paint. She uses sharp brush strokes, contrasting textures, and a variety of acrylic mediums, commenting on our human emotions. 
Diana Rosa received her Bachelor of Art in Art History at the Oriente University, Santiago de Cuba, Cuba(1989-1994) and worked as a curator at the Contemporary Art Centre in Holguin, Cuba (1994-2000) . Her work has been included in many publications and online periodicals such as Home and décor magazine, The Brampton Guardian Newspaper and Toronto Life Magazine.  Diana is a full time studio artist, exhibiting her work in galleries and museums regionally, nationally, and internationally. 

Diana Rosa Pupo Latourt was born June 24, 1971 in Holguin, Cuba
