Featured Art: Studio Visit Magazine Winter 2015

Studio Visit Magazine Feature

Bay Area fine artist Uriél Dana is featured in the Winter Edition of Studio Visit Magazine, Volume 32. Her oil paintings are inspired by San Francisco’s nouveau cirque culture. Uriél has said, “These are not just people in costume but represent a rich array of human talents that incorporate theater, literature, aerobics, dance, poetry and above all, mystery.” Humor and whimsy are also added to brighten the mood for what many consider dark times.

“For over three decades I have been known as a surrealist painter. I have also been a practitioner of Tibetan Dream Yoga since childhood as a way to control a sleeping disorder. Surrealism is defined as the mixture of two realities not normally found side by side. These two paths are intimately intertwined for me. This is how I have lived my entire life.

In 2011 I consciously began to paint people I think of as “living surrealists”. These are real people reinventing new ways to see the world. I paint them to inspire others to unleash their creativity and as a reminder to all that we can create our own, positive reality.”
