Wk 2 – Artist Interview – Gianina Nunez

Today was the first time I visited the campus art galleries, and of all the galleries, Gianina Nunez stood out to me from the others the most. At first glance, her art work instantly reminded me of an artist I learned of in the past, Audrey Flack, who also does still life paintings. Nunez started drawing when she was young and now teaches children from 7 year-olds to adults. Her paintings are a combination of still life with an interesting twist by incorporating personal, motivational messages into the artwork. According to Nunez, she feels that still life tells the story more, which I do agree. I thought the little messages were very inspirational and it was something different and new. Gianina definitely achieved that uniqueness in her still-life art style by doing so, and I enjoyed looking at her pieces.
