After working as a free lance artist for the film, television, theatre and museums for 15 + years, I have returned to the process of making art. The new work picks up not too far from where it was left of 15 years earlier. This time with a more comprehensive understanding of tools, materials and process. And a more refined method of application. This body of work, in style, borrows from the relief sculptures of the classical art of Greece & Rome, the neo classical, socialist art and the iconography of industrial idealism.

Born in Milano, Italy, but having chosen Australia as my home, I appreciate traditional as well as less-conventional forms of art. I am passionate about art and exploring different techniques and art mediums. My best-known line of work is sculpture in metal wire, but I also use many different mediums to sculpt and paint. I choose from many different techniques, what I consider the best vehicle to represent and express my artistic vision. Inspired by nature, my goal is to celebrate the beauty and variety of living things, that are often taken for granted.
Cynthia Larenas is an Adelaide digital artist combining bold, colourful graphics with nostalgic-inspired animations. Having moved to Australia at a young age from her native Ecuador, Cynthia developed an early fascination with cultural entities, particularly with the way people experience their world and form their own realities. Cynthia’s practice is influenced by neon lights, sci-fi computer graphics and aesthetics reminiscent of 1980’s film and print media.
