Artist Bio  --- VIDEO WORK

Daniela Rivera was born in Lima, Peru in 1996.  Having been raised next to the ocean between Peru and Australia, Daniela grew up with a transcultural world view and a sensitivity towards the natural world. 

Her fine art work is inspired in peruvian spirituality, classical mythology as well as Latin American imagery in poetry and fiction. Her non-fiction work explores women stories as an attempt to bring back her voice when growing up in post-conflict conservative Lima and a desire to contribute in reshaping traditional narratives. At the age of 16 she had a significant leg injury that disabled her from further dance training, which led her to the exploration of photography and consequently the fluctuating experience of her body and mind which she keeps present as a reminder for empathy and connection.
