Tiani Rosado | The Beginning:
My love for art began ever since I could hold a pencil. I always loved to draw but was kind of discouraged growing up to pursue art as a career. At 18 years old, while I was still in school and working I thought to myself “why don’t I get my ideas out by using my love for art?” Since then, I began entering myself in art shows and heavily pursuing art as a career. My true inspiration to keep going is for all the people who think they cannot live out their ‘true’ dreams. I want to be the voice for those who cannot speak for themselves. Also, I am big on the women empowerment and the movement of women. I will always use my platform to fight for the equality of all women.
Out of all of my paintings the one that holds the most sentimental value is called ‘look inside of my soul’. It was basically a self portrait of my aura and spirit. It’s a chest ripped open with a sun yin/yang coming out of it. This painting represents the light, the balance that shines through me. It symbolizes me being way more than my physical appearance. Due to its significance, I probably won’t sell the original.
My prices depend on 3 factors: size/theme/hours taken to make it. They usually are anywhere between $70 and $150.
