Check out Arianna Falquez’s Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to Arianna Falquez.

Arianna, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I was born in Guayaquil, a small but vibrant city in Ecuador; and I grew up in a home of designers and Bauhaus-lovers. My designed, minimalist life at home heavily contrasted the lush and grunge of my hometown, and my fascination with how these worlds complemented each other plays heavily in my work and life today.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I’m currently majoring in Illustration at ArtCenter College of Design, but I’ve had a couple of opportunities to dip my toes in the professional world and work in Motion Graphics; specifically in title design.

I feel lucky to be a designer in a time where we have so much freedom to cross platforms and play in different fields. Illustration has been something that has allowed me to dive into other areas of design like animation and typography; though, in the end, it’s all about playing with and exploring different ways to communicate ideas.

My work is very much inspired by things around me, whether these are objects around my apartment or things that I see while walking down the street. I try and take a lot of pictures to remember their details because I believe that how you translate those is what makes the result of it unique.

I really hope that from looking at my work, people get to see that there are so many different lenses that you can look at the world through, and it’s all about how you visually communicate what you want to say.

What do you think it takes to be successful as an artist?
When it comes to image-making, especially in a visually saturated world, I consider a project to be successful if it’s able to get me to react the way the designer behind it probably intended it to. I apply this to my work as well, so it’s always important to me that my approach feels intentional, but seamlessly crafted into something that guides the viewer through experience or message.

As an artist and designer, I really think that you have to be open to observing and experiencing the world in order to communicate successfully. It’s so important to be aware of how many different ways there are to convey a message, and then bringing that freshness and authenticity into your work.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
My work is currently on my website (ariannafalquez.com) and Instagram (@ariannadrawsthings).
