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. She works inspired by nature and life and employs a naïve folk-art style to explore questions of identity, love, relationship and environment in our society. Her paintings often had strong autobiographical elements and mixed realism with fantasy. She makes personal women’s experiences serious subjects for art, but because of their intense emotional content, her paintings transcend boundaries by their powerful and intimate narratives. Now living in an urban environment in 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) . Also she completed the course Modern Art and Ideas. Museum of Modern Art, New York and Art History: Renaissance Art to Present at Sotheby's Institute of Art, New York(Department of Online Learning)2019. Her work has been included in many publications and online periodicals such as Home and décor magazine, The Brampton Guardian Newspaper, Now Magazine and Toronto Life Magazine.
