Diversity Rules Magazine
Stella Lillig lives and works in New York City. She was born in Bogotá, Columbia, into an artistic Jewish family, she was determined, from a young age, to confront the issues of living in an aesthetically beautiful, but politically and socially corrupt land.
She began painting at 10, and in an effort to develop a unique perspective and assert her own values and emotions, she resolved to explore the world and discover more enriching cultures through her travels. She has been influenced by her experiences in numerous places: Bogotá, London, Cambria, Rome, Florence, Hamilton, St. George, Ensenada, San Juan, San Pedro, St. Croix, Martinique, Des Moines, San Francisco, and her adopted home, New York City.
As a self-taught visual artist, she brings to the canvas a perfect contrast between earthy art and raw, almost industrial looking abstractions. Stella constructs the ideal frame for her works. Made of concrete, each frame gives her pieces a unique 21st-century quality and an antique, yet futuristic appearance. Stella exhibits her artwork in Manhattan.
“In her paintings, She continues to passionately express Her state of mind with bright colors, geometric patterns and collages. Her recent creations are inspired by music, places, people and the emotions they evoke.”
