Diana Beltran Herrera
Originally from Colombia, Diana Beltran Herrera now lives in Bristol where she works as an artist, designer and paper-craft extraordinaire.
Diana is represented by WE ARE GOODNESS, creative agency and sister company to Inkygoodness (an online platform showcasing the best in graphic art and illustration where I worked as blog editor before starting Headless Greg). Other artists on WE ARE GOODNESS' impressive international rostra of talent include Muxxi, Kristyna Baczynski and Marijke Buurlage.
The natural world acts as a constant source of inspiration for Diana, looking to address humanity's relationship with the nature in much of her work. Mimicking repetition and pattern found in nature, Diana's mind-bogglingly intricate artworks come as close to replicating the real thing as humanly possible.
In fact, Diana's flock of feathered friends are so truly life-like, I don’t know how surprised I would be if one of them took flight. How impossible is it really? With the ingenious level of skill which goes in to creating each bird, I am sure mastering the science/ magic it would take to bring them to life would be a doddle.
