Perhaps you once made a $10 contribution to be in the Artists Directory, and we’ve kept your name there for people to reach out and learn more about you and your work.

Shany Porras’s abstract paintings visually translate what one experiences through music. She started studying classical music when you, which has meant that music remains an essential part of her daily living. She ‘sees’ music as an abstract language, and she translates music to paintings, much in the same way she would translate one language to another. Shany chooses music that is inspirational to her, selecting topics such as Greek mythology, her home country of Venezuela, or today’s popular or politically charged music. Each painting is unique to each musical piece. It is clear that her selection of mediums, including acrylic paint, graphite, wax crayons, ink, and spray paint, found objects, etc. hinges on her interpretation of the language of music. Her art is deeply influenced by Bauhaus and the American abstract painters of the 20th century, borrowing from their techniques and applying them as needed to interpret music.
