Exploring Color And The Female Form With Daiana Ruiz
In her explorations of the female form, Buenos Aires-based illustrator Daiana Ruiz uses color and simple line work to delineate powerful women.
Looking at her palette and repeated motifs — her reverence for artists like Matisse, Hockney, Gaugin and the abstract, patterned and pop-colored postmodern Memphis Group, seems obvious. With a background in multimedia design, Daiana drafts her work with pencil and paper before moving to the computer to digitize and add color. Her work feels essentially optimistic, the women she portrays, powerful.
