Fixin to Smoke

Fixin to Smoke, acrylic on canvas, 24" x 24", 2013

Ariel Minervini is an abstract painter based in Des Moines, Iowa.  She is inspired by emotion, music, and the world as she sees it.  To create her bold, vivid works of art she uses acrylic paint and a variety of tools which give her canvases a sense of depth and texture.

In her paintings and in her daily life Ariel tries not to take herself too seriously.  You might see this reflected in the titles of her paintings which, at times, project her wicked sense of humor.

"My paintings are a representation of my subconscious mind.  I use color, shape and texture to express and navigate the complex and chaotic world around me."
