Diana Pimienta “ When love awakens in your life, in the night of your heart, it is like the dawn breaking within you. Where before there was anonymity, now there is intimacy; where before there was fear, now there is courage; where before in your life there was awkwardness, now there is a rhythm of grace and gracefulness; where before you used to be jagged, now you are elegant and in rhythm with your self. When love awakens in your life, it is like a rebirth, a new beginning. ” ― John O'Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom Diana Pimienta is a mixed media american artist with latin descent. She grew up with a family that appreciated latin art but, her true work began on the dance floor, as she would create kinesthetic movements that embodied her artistic rhythm. The artistic freedom that she craved expanded onto paper and she was inspired to diversify her artistry into something deeper. It became a rebirth of life as she ventured into an exploration of creation by developing a connection with her true self. Her artwork reflects the awakening of life, the emotions that we battle as divine beings and the elements of the universe that spark love. She gravitates towards the stylings of pop art and abstract in which she better connects with the passion and richness of life. She believes that art is expansion that can be translated onto the many forms of daily tasks, in which she calls: The dance of life. In recent years, her work has been featured on a live web series, local shows and on an artist based podcast, in which she discussed her artistic inspiration.
