Yelitza Diaz
Mauldin, South Carolina

Born in Venezuela, Yelitza Diaz’s life has been wrapped in the arts since childhood. She founded a gallery with her husband, who is also an artist, and was successful for many years until the crime and corruption in the local government became unbearable. They now live in South Carolina, where she makes art that explores human existentialism and the political and social developments of her native country. Her sculptures are made with ceramic techniques using a minimalist contemporary style. Fun fact: Yelitza designed the town seal for her native Municipio Falcón in Venezuela.

I was worried about the safety of the shipment, as this is a fragile piece, but the package arrived packed so well, I was really impressed. It took me a while to unpack it, and when I finally took the artwork out of the box, it looked even better in real life. I love the originality of the piece and how thought provoking it is. It fit beautifully in our living room and matched the decor perfectly. I will definitely consider purchasing more artwork from the same artist in the future.

Yelitza Diaz, Venezuelan born artist, September 1973. Since she was a child has been wrapped in the life of the arts. In 1995, she graduated from the arts school Arturo Michelena in Valencia-Venezuela y later attended countless art workshops. Also, she participated in important competitions of Fine Arts at national and international level, where are granted awards and recognition. Also, worked as professor of Art Education and Art History. Some of her artworks are in Important collections in Venezuela, Europe and USA. Passionate about human figure, she makes his sculptures with ceramic techniques with a minimalist-contemporary style, with a clear inclination for human existentialism. With her works she tries to reflect the hope of the universal man, the despair, the most hidden feelings of the human being, the lack of action and reaction, among others. "The human body is in charge of transmitting everything that words do not express" she says. I see myself in the future as a universal artist, recognized and happy to contribute to the world with all the best of myself.

Thanks for a great, thought provoking piece. I see it everyday on my way out of the house. You can start a new day just hanging on, or climbing into it instead!
