ARTIST AT A GLANCE
Location: Toronto, Ontario
Vero Diaz is a professional artist born in Mexico from multiple bloodstreams, mainly Indigenous Nations from Anahuac and Abya Yala - The Americas. They have been honing their photography skills since 2012 and painting skills since childhood. Their work is inspired by the traditions, ceremonial art making, and the active resurgence of their People to flourish and thrive.
Through photography, they are focused on creating a Códice (Codex), a living text, by inviting the viewer to experience a moment of stillness within a timeless space. Through painting and digital art, Diaz’s role is to spark curiosity and hope with colourful images that become creative portals for activation and release. They believe art is a fun and sophisticated solution for the disharmony within and among us and for the healing of personal and intergenerational trauma. Art as a healing process and anchor of hope is especially appropriate when including an authentic connection to the land, our healed or healing bodies, and radical imaginations.
