Daily Inspiration: Meet Desiree Ruiz

Today we’d like to introduce you to Desiree Ruiz.

Hi Desiree, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself
Orlando’s emerging contemporary artist Desiree Ruiz Velázquez presents her first solo show, “UNCERTAINTY REALMS, The Art of the Unknown”.

The one-night only, semi-formal exhibition is open to the public, taking place at Henao Contemporary Center on Saturday, December 11th, 2021 from 7pm to 10pm.

The 25 year old artist, known in the area as the Crystal Artist, will be featuring a collection of over 40 original works of art filled
with metaphysical symbolism, introducing new works that are yet to be revealed to the public eye.

Counting with the music performance by one of Orlando’s most reputable DJs, DJ Nela, Desiree invites you to sip a glass of wine from the bar as you get lost in the lounge-type, chill atmosphere of the evening. Enjoy and collect the outstanding works of art as they take you places you’ve never been before.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
As an independent artist, Desiree Ruiz has single-handedly prepared and organized the exhibition, acting as the event planner, art curator, advertising and marketing manager, creative director for the show as well as the artist herself, focusing on finishing the series of 40 originals that will line up the walls at Henao Contemporary Center the night of the show.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
Desiree is known for her signature crystal quartz studies and ethereal female portraits delicately hand drawn and painted with the use of oils.

Her work is heavily influenced by mystical, cosmic realms, the metaphysical and the occult sciences as she seeks to break the taboos of all that is feared and mistaken.
