My name is Ailen Garcia Gorrita, born in the beautiful country of Cuba. Moved to the United States at the age of 12 where I began my studies and discovered my passion for art, architecture and design. My educational background started at the University of Florida with a Bachelors in Design and Architecture then proceeded to acquire a Masters in Architecture at Washington University in St.Louis. Throughout my six years in school I have done a variety of projects, ranging from designing parks, kinetic imaging videos, to free-hand abstract art and more.
My color palette is very intuitive. My work emerges from a subconscious idea. I articulate my drawings as they develop. I let the drawing speak for itself, it tells me what it wants to be. I work in layers. Each layer merges with the one underneath, creating a symphony of lines and color that are aesthetically pleasing. I strongly believe that the hand and the mind work in uniform creating beauty in its abstract form, with a different idea with each set of eyes. I want to inspire curiosity when people look at my artwork. I want people to ask questions, to arouse thoughts. I want the colors to draw you in, confuse you, awe you, and answer you at the same time.
