This painting started out as a drawing. I really liked the drawing so I made it into a painting. It's about a piper who enchants animals to dance by playing his flute.

Getting to Know Beatriz

Beatriz’s paintings are finely executed depictions of the bizarre. Hovering between the categories of outsider art and surrealism, the work is simultaneously eerie and humorous. Beatriz draws on science fiction and horror films such Star Wars and The Shining as inspiration for her eccentric subjects. “There’s usually some scenario going on that tells some kind of story,” says the artist of her compositions. Beatriz recently chose to devote her full attention to pursuing her artistic career, and she aims to continue developing her uniquely unconventional style.
