|About the Artist:
Raquel Finol is a peculiar artist who currently lives in Kissimmee, Florida. Born and raised in Maracaibo, Venezuela, where his artistic education is based mainly in the culture around us, contact with people, nature, and the knowledge acquired in his career as an architect. After moving to Florida, Raquel worked as a graphic designer and interior decorator, and later dabbled in the art of photography.
A restless artist, Rachel began to travel through Europe, where he gained much inspiration for her works. In addition to his travels, her work is related to emotion, expression and cultures, showing the artist's feelings through his work.
Raquel style constantly displays a passionate intensity and spontaneity, focusing on images that are reborn in their creativity, which digitizes. Each piece is coupled to an internal conversation between photography, painting and everyday life. Their goal is not that his work makes sense, but rather to recreate and make a positive emotional connection to the viewer.
Previously, her work has been executed private and public sectors in his hometown, but now you can see in international cities such as Poland, Italy, France and the United States.
