DESCRIPTION

Amara Por Dios's Piece Of Mined is her first international exhibition and a exploration of her south american roots. Born in Sweden to Chilean parents Amara was very aware of her cultural differences growing up and her artwork is both an expression and homage to the ancestry she a learned to embrace.

Inspired by the sculptures, masks, paintings, cultures and wildlife Piece Of Mined is full of vibrant colours, characters and patterns reminiscent of the ancient art from latin america modernised through a mixed medium of Ink, spray paint and acrylic brought to life by her graffiti technique more commonly used in her street art which decorates the urban landscapes of both Sweden and England like contemporary cave paintings.
