Alicia Adanna native of San Fernando, Trinidad and Tobago, raised in Philadelphia Pa,
is a self-taught abstract painter, abstract photographer and poet.
Learning most of her painting techniques through her love of color and experimentation
she finds the most of her inspiration through raw emotion, feeling the energy conveyed in each piece.
Her style of photography captures rare shots and manipulates the photos into what she likes to call
Abstratography – abstract form of photography, resulting in energetic prints unique to her style.
Her poetry speaks truth, and is a reflection of her positive state of mind.
Through her Positive Mind = Peace of Mind poetry, she creates short positive poems, using styles such as Haiku’s and Tankas
Alicia also finds time to educate the youth on what she knows about art, and how abstract art guides children to be more positively expressive. She assists and supports the youth in creating unique abstract projects based on self awareness, self expression and positive living, while learning about basic color theory and diverse abstract forms.
Painting allows me to create and express raw emotions that can be viewed by eyes that have individual meanings.
Abstract art grants me the
ability to be as liberal as I want. Not defined to what is “normal” but what I understand to be true.
I always find myself captivated by color, no
matter the value, hue, saturation it commands my attention.
Photography or what I like to call Abstratography allows me to capture moments in time, through still or in motion. The possibilities to manipulate are endless with my imagination.
Positive Poetry keeps me balanced. Finding words to express positive growth and peace of mind which are essential to self knowledge spiritual and mental growth, being inspired and inspiring artist alike. With theses positive poems I emit a strong and powerful positive energy throughout.
My art is expressive, it is me. As I’ve grown, so has its meaning, transforming before my eyes, now I understand that this is what I love.
Nothing grants me more pleasure and satisfaction to know that I have created something beautiful, that is honest and one hundred percent me.
I love that I can produce art that people love and understand in their own way and have significant meaning to them.
I paint abstract art, take photographs and write poetry because it’s what I love to do; my art is me in rare form, which I consider to be “normal”. lolz 🙂
