Self-taught sensation Revi Ferrer found her artistic calling early on amongst the museums and concert halls of Riga, Latvia by inserting herself into various art schools and architectural study programs. After finding her first place in the creative world at a prominent architectural firm in Riga, a change of course took Revi to London. A dive into the Fashion pond turned out a great catch when she landed on the pages of Vogue and Marie Claire with her designs for Old Gringo Boots. But Fashion could hold this rising star for only so long and Revi found herself answering the call to buy a canvas and start painting.
In no time, her style was developed, and she was creating a formation of Linear paintings that encompass a little bit of fashion and a little bit of architecture.
Taking the Nashville art scene by storm, where she currently resides, Revi is focused on doing what the universe has intended her to do: CREATE ART. She continues to investigate design with her paint brush, which in and of itself is odd because as a child, the artist favored pencils rather than paint, and found the medium to be messy and complicated to use.
She says of her work, “I feel that The Artist is someone who accesses genius via intuition, creativity, and courage. I naturally challenge the status quo and rebuke the notion of living within the mean. For me, creation is the most vulnerable form of personal sacrifice. Art feels like pouring emotion out of the soul out into the negative space; the birth of an idea, emotion and an entity that never existed before that moment. Art is the absolute practice of our most basic humanity”.
Combining aspects of the linear and the painterly styles of painting, which are often adverse styles, Revi has opened the door to a new and fantastical way of seeing everyday objects. It is more of an experience than just seeing, and her work is more of an exploration into the many layers that make up the dynamic and driven Revi Ferrer.
