Behind the Paintbrush

Amabel Riverón’s artistic journey began as a form of self-expression and has since evolved into a medium that she hopes will inspire others to unleash their own creativity. A Florida native of Cuban descent, Amabel earned her Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology, a field that continues to fuel her passion for world culture, history, and archaeology.

The artist’s preferred medium is oil, and her current style could often be described as Figurative Realism encompassed by action drip techniques and abstract textures and backgrounds. This style, which she fondly calls emotional painting – allows her to explore her innermost emotions in a way that aims to captivate the viewer. She tries to imbue her paintings with a magnetic quality that draws the eye, and she is not afraid to take risks when it comes to her art. Each painting represents an emotional relationship with her canvas that has been months in the making.

Amabel’s work is a reflection of her soul – a kaleidoscope of colors that weave a tapestry of her emotions and experiences. Through her art, she hopes to invite viewers into the world of her dreams, a world where creativity reigns supreme. Her pieces inspire us to break free from the constraints of everyday life and embrace our imaginations.

With her passion, talent, and dedication, Amabel aspires to make a name for herself in the art world serving to help inspire her fellow emerging artists of all mediums to follow their passions.

Most Frequently Asked Question

Why do I use oils?

I suppose I like oils because they don't dry as quickly, and I'm told that I can be pretty indecisive. I can work on a painting for days, weeks, months... and have an emotional relationship with the piece. I always have an idea for my paintings, but I never know how they will end up... they evolve with me and I absolutely love that emotional process!
