Cris Delara, defines herself, artistically, as a self-taught, independent, versatile artist.
However, she studied, since very young, at the age of nine years old, in different private art courses and in art studios oil painting, illustration/drawing, charcoal, graphic design techniques, principles of animation, etc.
She didn’t follow a career in arts at the university; actually, she graduated a bachelor’s in business and Administration, but by fate or irony few years after working in that area, she decided that being an artist was her call.
With just a few artistic experiences but a lot of perseverance, she then worked in several different areas for the next years as:
Fortunately, even with a busy schedule, during all those years working in the industry, Cris always had time to get commissioned works from private collectors and fans regarding Fan Art subjects and Portraits.
What inspires me is to be able to explore my imagination as a trigger to make conceptual portraits showing different subjects to embody my artistic expression.
My focus is to enhance my skills in draftsmanship and Conceptual Art and combining those subjects to elaborate on my Artwork and my portraits.
I like to “play” with the realism mixed with some “zest” of my conceptual freedom.
In each piece, my goal is to create what I call “ the experience of the wondering” where there are no limitations for our imagination.
Using the traditional media or digitla media, both tools helping me to create the imaginative… both worlds playing together, connecting and completing each other in an endless process of transformation.
To communicate my art I use my favourite traditional media which involve Charcoal, Oils, and Acrylics. Digitally, I use Clip Studio, Corel Painter, Art Rage and Photoshop.
