Nathalia Suizu is an emerging Melbourne based artist who strives to live and paint by the mantra 'follow your bliss'. Her vibrant creations draw the viewer into an uplifting world, fully charged with colour & magic.
Underpinned by a strong pop art aesthetic, she takes influence from Latin American folk art, psychedelia, retro fashion and design, traditional tattoo culture and religious iconography. Layered with symbols and archetypal motifs, her paintings are intuited visual narratives that allude to themes of mythology, mysticism, duality, femininity and enchantment. Predominantly using acrylic and gouache mediums, she favours a complementary palette of richly saturated colours applied in solid, glossy swathes. Searching for balance and meaning in each piece, her approach to mark-making is a continuous dance between careful consideration and playful spontaneity.
Nathalia has exhibited at various Australian galleries, including Off The Kerb, Ambush Gallery, RVCA Corner Gallery & No Vacancy Gallery. She has lent her artistry to local fashion and retail brands, including Erik Yvon, The Social Studio & Hey Tiger.
