About Riana van Staden

 
 
  • Biography
    I love to paint and work in acrylics, pen, ink, oil pens and watercolor to create fantasy portraits as well as my favorite, abstract space art, using symbols and patterns.  In all my work, whether it is a portrait or space art, you will find lots of fine details with symbols in it.

    People sometimes ask me what was my inspiration?  I really work intuitively, creating every dot or brushstroke from my soul, knowing that it has meaning and purpose.  I spend endless hours working on each piece to add the very last mark or symbol to create a piece with a lot of detail.

    For me it is important to see the art piece but also to look deeper and to see the detail and meaning of everything in it.  There are more than the eye sees in all my work. 

    I already started 2018 with two exhibitions, one in New York and one in Portugal with more exhibitions for the rest of the year. Please check back to my page for more details for upcoming exhibitions. 

    I hope that you will enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating them!

Biography

I love to paint and work in acrylics, pen, ink, oil pens and watercolor to create fantasy portraits as well as my favorite, abstract space art, using symbols and patterns.  In all my work, whether it is a portrait or space art, you will find lots of fine details with symbols in it.

People sometimes ask me what was my inspiration?  I really work intuitively, creating every dot or brushstroke from my soul, knowing that it has meaning and purpose.  I spend endless hours working on each piece to add the very last mark or symbol to create a piece with a lot of detail.

For me it is important to see the art piece but also to look deeper and to see the detail and meaning of everything in it.  There are more than the eye sees in all my work. 

I already started 2018 with two exhibitions, one in New York and one in Portugal with more exhibitions for the rest of the year. Please check back to my page for more details for upcoming exhibitions. 

I hope that you will enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating them!
