It’s hard not to smile when looking at Ana Leovy Perez’s paintings. Through bold caricatures and colors, the Mexican artista has created vibrant worlds that explore her views on internal and external beauty. Upon looking at Ana’s work, you will notice that the people in her paintings are diverse – ranging in all shapes, skin-tones and sizes – harmoniously coexisting in the bright and wondrous worlds she has created for them. By challenging the conventional ideal of the human form through her paintings, Ana is sending a message to the world that diversity is something to be embraced and celebrated, opposed to being something that can divide us.
The young artist already has a number of impressive commissions under her belt, creating custom designs for the likes of Teen Vogue, The Guardian and Justina Blakeney. Although her favorite recent commission was creating the album art for singer Charlie Burg’s latest single “Channel Orange in Your Living Room”. This was Ana’s first collaboration with a musician and an avenue of her creativity that she has always wanted to explore.
