Exploring Afro-Latino and European heritage with Philadelphia-based artist, Kimberly Torres, Ep. 88
< 1 day ago
Ep. 88: Kimberly Torres is Black, Cuban, Puerto Rican and Italian. She grew up and still lives in Philadelphia, where she has developed a powerful and profound artistic voice, which she represents through primarily oil-based paintings. Given her extremely diverse background, Kim is no stranger to being a part of (and being isolated from) multiple communities. However, through her art, she's been able to synthesize her expansive and diverse background and experience into one very moving and significant multiracial voice that celebrates racial identity for people coming from a multiracial/Biracial background. Her paintings are meant to show symbols that culturally connect to her subjects depending on their mixture. By containing them in frames also gives them a sense of preciousness. Her interests in photorealism, portraiture, Northern Baroque and Italian Renaissance work are what’s influencing the use of portraiture in her work.
