About The Artist

Fior De La Cruz (b.1997) is an emerging artist located in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. Holding a BS in Fashion Merchandising & Retail Marketing, she spent most of her starting career in the Ecommerce industry. Once the pandemic hit, she decided to resume her creative pursuits. 

I create vibrant paintings that glow under UV black-light. While approaching a blank canvas intuitively, choosing color and composition is strictly based on mood. The brushstrokes remain playful and full of movement, while they can also be subdued and soft. The work is created by expressively layering paint, constantly leaving each part of the work busy. The vibrancy of the work is used to contrast the emotional depth behind the pieces - highlighting topics of mental health, identity, explores relationships with self, and the world around us.

My work uses dream-like escapism to dissect internal feelings while questioning the dualities of life and purpose. I fuse various abstract styles with street art techniques, mixing of both representational cues and nonrepresentational cues to put the viewer in a contemplative state. The paintings are meant to reflect feelings, stories, and memories and give a sense of nostalgia through the playfulness of light.

Fior has participated in various exhibitions throughout New England, including a 2nd annual invitational exhibit showcased at the Providence Art Club, and Celebrating Spring juried exhibition at Spring Bull Gallery in Newport.

Her work is starting to be seen in different exhibitions, public spaces, businesses, markets, ​and the homes of various collectors in Rhode Island and across the nation.
