Yalitza Aparicio

Dina Blokhina Yalitza Line Art.jpg

My next painting features Yalitza Aparicio, a Mexican actress who debuted in Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma. I was moved by the poetry and the gravity of this film. Yalitza’s acting was remarkable, and I wanted to express her character’s melancholy poise. She holds to the beauty of life, like she has wings, even when she experiences pain.

Currently, I have painted the preliminary color study as well as the line art. I will share the final piece here upon completion.
