WHO IS AMBER VITTORIA?
Award winning artist, Amber Vittoria, has been a huge inspiration to me for a looong time now! Her eye-catching work is really fun and playful, while also provoking emotion and making a statement. She uses a full spectrum of colors and gradients mixed with very distinct line drawings to demonstrate her relationship to femininity, emotion and societal expectations.
IN THEIR OWN WORDS
- WHO ARE YOU?
My name is Amber Vittoria and I'm an artist working in New York City.
A typical weekday involves me waking up, exercising, getting ready for work, painting, working on client projects, then reading in the evenings. As for process - exercising allows me time to think about new pieces that I’m working on, which is incredible. Reading also teaches me, which influences a lot of my work.
- WHY? WHAT'S YOUR MISSION/CONCEPT/IMPACT?
Through simple abstracted form and ribbons of color, my work aims to represent the nuances of womanhood.
- WHERE DO YOU FIND INSPIRATION?
My colors are inspired by outfits of passersby, by nature, and by evolution of previous palettes I’ve used in the past.
- WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO INSPIRE?
Confidence in oneself!
