I have been creating & studying different arts all my life with the intention of meeting myself in a more profoundly human way.
Moving to and living in San Francisco inspired me to play and create, to share my observations of social actions and how the psyche responds to humor and tragedy.
I see art everywhere: in mental escapism, in the beauty of a naked body, on a street vendor, in religious symbolism, or in how a meaningless object could represent a personality type.
My anonymous street installations aim to connect or expose another side of society’s paradigms with a combination of art & humor.
I have interest in making interactive, whimsical and playful art as well as compassionate and empathic pieces which allow me to express pain and struggle as well as humor and banality.
I am inspired by human relationships, destiny, positive thinking, love and generosity.
I currently have a studio at http://www.1890bryant.com/ #317
Born in 1974 in Terrassa, Barcelona, Ana Rivero Rossi is a Spanish Artist living & working in San Francisco. She is interested in sharing observations of social actions and how the psyche responds to humor & tragedy. Her art expression often juxtaposes classical beauty in a harsh context, intending to raise awareness of the strength we must endure in order to survive in an urban environment. Ana got her art education at SF City College and was mentored in Spain by the painter Rafael Serres Asens.
She has participated in several group shows as well as solo exhibitions.
Her work has been featured by several publications like SF Gate, Mission Local, Vogue Magazine & El Pais.
