Puerto Rican artist Vero Rivera has built her practice around her interest in the contradiction between nature and man-made spaces. According to Vero, she is inspired by shapes found in nature, especially leaves. When creating street art, she prioritizes putting her organic images in empty urban areas. “They are simply there, intervening. It’s almost as if nature is taking back the unused urban space,” says Vero. In her art, she intends to catch the spectators attention by utilizing natural elements and their ornamental qualities, while simultaneously trying to represent how human relations mimic nature’s ability to adapt, heal and strive depending on its surroundings and experiences.
