CAN WE REALLY FIND LITERATURE IN ART?
Ariel has written an article in Harness Magazine, an online magazine which promotes the freedom of expression and female empowerment, in the Spring of 2017. It discusses the many ways the artist becomes inspired through literature, and how important themes can be represented in her paintings.
A special feature in filmmaker Melissa Aflalo's documentary #ChooseLife, which explores the struggles of mental health by different women, and their challenge to overcome all of their obstacles. Here, Ariel discusses her struggle and acceptance of body image, which is reflected in her series "Essence of a Woman."
Ariel had the opportunity to design the cover art of Montreal's emerging author, Michael Occhionero. A compelling tale of youthful nihilism, Idle Hands depicts a life to be won or lost. Convinced there is nothing to fight for, the protagonist may just risk more than he realizes.
