Cris Delara is a traditional/digital illustrator painter, and independent artist who owns Cris Delara Art Studio located in Ontario - Canada.
She is internationally renowned with works published in comics, games, art magazines, books, tutorials, online courses, TV networks, and in a stream of other areas.
Her skilled artwork is full of life, creativity, and energy, and many could define it as “whimsical”.
Cris manufactures art with passion, soul, precision, and abandonment of limits in artistic expression.
Yes, manufacture is the right word because she makes art like a “machine” and she does it professionally.
She lives, eats, and breathes her art 24/7, and she loves what she does.
Her art is her life, her passion, and her call.
After years of working in different areas of the art industry as an illustrator, she decided to follow her biggest passions and dedicate her work to Portraiture and Designs.
These two complemented areas are the perfect combination that gives her all the tools she needs to institute the style as a reference.
Creativity, conceptualization, charm, joy, details, delight, improvement, quality…. we can use a plethora of words, synonyms, and adjectives to say that her art is unique, “whimsical”, and…. extremely fine.
Fine art is what you find in Cris’ every and all artistic delivery.
Whether in the traditional or digital environment, perceiving her artwork is a deeply, truly, pleasant experience that will make you aligned and fond of her artistic passion.
I invite you to look at her website and her artwork. I bet you will enjoy everything.
I am honored that she asked me to write down some words about her (I could write a chapter).
Portraiture and Design are my passions.
In my vision, they always can complete each other perfectly.
These two amazing universes feed constantly my mind with tons of inspiration and make me feel completely in love and fascinated about my work.
When I am creating and painting portraits my focus is to find a way of translating the personality, history, and energy of my model into my work.
Every portrait (classic or imaginative style) carries an interesting story to be told. I use my artistic expression, as one of the added values, to highlight the final result of my artwork.
When I am conceptualizing and designing my mind dives into the fascinating challenge of gathering all pieces of information and combining them into a neat and powerful symbol capable of branding a clear message straight to my audience.
Portraiture and design fuel my passion and boost my creativity as if in an endless process of transformation.
When I am working on my personal projects or my clients's projects that passion brings me the joy and the certainty that make me a successful artist.
