Austin artist Selena Fara grew up on the beaches of Sarasota FL. She explored her artistic path on both the West and East coasts. She feels deep gratitude to have been awarded Los Angeles RAW artist of the year in 2011, as her body of work expanded.
Moving from LA to New York allowed her vision to take full form as she was intrigued by the notion: “While one is asleep in this world, one is awake in another.” Selena’s work today combines these two worlds unassumingly. She is inspired by the details of things and people.
Fara believes that layers and textures are what make up the human experience in life, as in her art. Every blank canvas holds new possibility of expression and hope for something more.
Today, Fara’s Collections Include:
Revival- The process of rebirth.
Impetus – Life in it’s truest forms.
Eclipsed – The hidden parts of ourselves.
Fragments – The many states of being.
