Surreal Beasts of Hannah Faith Yata, and Where to Find Them!

For someone who is not used to surrealism these paintings may look like a super strong psychedelic experience. Therefore, for a moment there you might think you are hallucinating from taking a huge dose of DMT. But I promise you, there is no stronger psychedelic than art! Our minds are one powerful tool, and artists such as Hannah Faith Yata love to play with that concept. If you scratch beneath the surface of these surreal beasts your brain will start adapting. It will explore the details, connecting them in one very clear message.

This New York based artist utilizes female form combined with surreal elements, to portray provocative themes. You might experience motifs such as: Mother Nature, sexuality, desire, and love through to darker themes such as oppression, destruction, greed and pain. These elements are combined many times to celebrate the female form that denies objectification and exploitation of nature and interweaves them into grotesquely beautiful, surreal dreamscapes. She uses masks from a mix of other cultures to speak to the different relationships those native tribes and cultures have with the earth, while giving anthropomorphic qualities and symbolism to the animals to speak their consciousness.

If I would have to describe myself in one sentence it would be something like this. A wanderer, a thinker, a fighter!

My inspiration comes from Nature and Madness. As a result you can see these two concepts intertwined in each and every one of my paintings.

For those who want to know why I use oil paints. It breathes best to me. Oil painting is one of the most challenging mediums and I’m in love with the long history behind it.

My plan for the future is growth. I have quite a few shows for 2017 booked already. But painting wise, I want to continue to push and test what I already know and take it to higher levels.

    Her work is incredible…one of my favorite female surreal artists of all time is Leonor Fini. Yata’s use of color and merging of beast and the female form elicits much emotion and mystery. It really leaves me in awe, and tickles my brain.
