My name is Kabriele Rosas. Originally I am from Mexico City; although I’ve been living in different places since I was 19. I would say I’ve been somewhat of a nomad, or Artista Ambulante. Before moving to Seattle in January 2011, I was living in different places such as: Waldron Island, Los Angeles, Michigan, Massachusetts, Mexico city, Maputo, Salvador Bahia, Marseille, Madrid.
Along with myself, my artwork experiences an amazing transformation every time I move to a different place. This can be especially seen in my most recent artwork, which is greatly influenced by nature and rural living conditions in contrast with mega cities and slums. The color and detail go deeper into contemplation they are a major part of the artwork that screams to bring attention and awareness for people that are forgetting the simplicity and beauty of life without technology. I feel we are living in a fast and empty, complicated era that is gradually making new generations who don’t know about the natural world. This technological madness and other issues of globalization have been challenging for me, yet at the same time giving me inspiration for my paintings and the ability to feel part of the simple beauty that we once had. Growing food and working in rural areas and volunteering in different projects have definitely change the way I see the art world and contemporary art in general.
Working in organic farms and non-profit organizations has also had an important influence on my artwork. I have given art workshops for street kids and orphans in 3rd world countries, such as Mexico, Mozambique and some regions in Brazil.
Starting income generating projects in Mozambique to support my workshops for kids, was an interesting way for me to show and involve my art in a community which was in great need of resources and full of talented children in need of an artistic outlet. I am definitely not just seeking for my place as an artist in a specific region or in the world in general, but also reach farther as a human being that happens to be a fine artist as well. I want to expand my talent into other communities and projects involving the good for people. I want to understand and be part of contemporary art without forgetting the essential beauty of painting.
