Karian Amaya


Originally from Chihuahua, Karian Amaya's work has human bonds as its nerve center and it is focused on an exploration of the division of the being, intimacy and identity. Her artwork is existencial and speaks about the melancholy of emptiness and simplicity outside the boundaries of the body. She intends to interpret and express the neurological points found in human relationships as well as an exploration of intimacy and identity. Her main art inspirations and interests revolve around the existentialism and contemplation of the modern world, which she likes to explore those concepts and represent them in a simple and literal way. 
With a Bachelor Degree in Visual Arts from Universidad de Guadalajara Mexico, she has attended the Students Art League of NY where she specialized in mixed media, is part of the IAP program at New York Foundation for the Arts 2015. In 2013-2014 she was awarded the scholarship PECDA Program of Artistic Incentive Creation.
Karian lives and works between Mexico and New York.
