"The World is My Canvas" - Artist, Gabriel Rivera

About The Artist

My Background


"I am best described as a 'Colourist'. My work is characterized by my use of intense color which becomes the dominant feature in my pieces; it is more important than it's other qualities. They also possess a satirical quality intended to illicit humor, irony or exaggeration."

My Medium


"I use many different mediums, such as acrylics, metal, wood and recycled materials. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style. They are reflected in my painting, prints and custom T-Shirts".

My Inspiration


"The world is my canvas. My artistic pieces expose and examine people's viewpoints, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues. These are the means by which I draw both inspiration and my creative energy. My artistic expression is like the aperture of a camera. My mind's eye opens, then shuts as it captures light, imagery and is transposed."
