ABOUT

Updated Bio Coming Soon!  

 

Miami native Amanda Valdes, 30, is a mainstay on the art scene. Her iconic macabre style is instantly recognizable and her impact has spread internationally. Valdes’ art focuses on the female identity and the sirens who fill her works are typically manufactured with acrylic paint, at times deconstructed with peroxide or embellished with pieces of broken mirror. She often uses spray paint, colored pencil, ink and watercolor as well. 

 

Valdes attended Florida Atlantic University and studied at the Art Institute of Fort 

Lauderdale. Her first solo exhibition debuted at the young age of 18.

 

Valdes currently lives in Portland, Oregon and South Florida with her dog, Ema.

PRESS | FEEDBACK

“She's known, and her art is wanted. And thanks to a consistent focus, decades of work and refinement and an unique style, supply and demand within the local industry seems to be working for Amanda Valdes like a work of art.”

Cash Lambert | The Atlantic Current, Jan/Feb 2015

 

"Fresh art like the work of Amanda Valdes surfaces once in rare while, but when it does, you never forget it."

Ellen Thistle | Pineapple Newspaper, June 2012

 

“The lithe female figures, limbs contorted expressively in play, hint at a backstory that only becomes clear once you look past the bright colors and pop art composition.”

Courtney Hambright | Pure Honey, Nov 2012

 

“Full of color and whimsy, her paintings are bursting with emotional expression, bordering on both reality and fantasy.”
