Issis Macias is a self-taught artist, born and raised in Southern California. In 2012, while exploring Los Angeles’ eclectic art scene, an encounter with a community of accomplished painters, musicians, and photographers ignited an exploration of “self” and a curiosity for artistic expression.
Today, her paintings are varied in style, reflecting an intuitive process and approach. She primarily works with acrylic and spray paints on canvas and enjoys the meditative process of using mixed media. Her textures, forms, and shapes are derived from her freestyle methods of spreading paint with canvas keys, wooden rulers, and bare hands. The result is a distinctive body of abstract artwork that is vibrant and emotive. Joy, exuberance, melancholy, and rage – are all transmuted in her paintings.
Currently residing in Madison, Wisconsin, she finds inspiration in the simplicity of life, soul connections, music, and travels.
