Ariel Aurora is an emerging artist based in Los Angeles, California that specializes in installation art.
She grew up in both San Diego and Los Angeles and received a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree with an emphasis in Ceramics from California State University, Long Beach in 2018. Her art studio is in Downtown Los Angeles just outside of the Art's District.
Her work explores the relationship between art and viewer when the art work imposes itself into the viewers personal space. Imposing and overwhelming, her work strives to make viewers unsure how to properly navigate the installation by not providing clear boundaries on what is "art space" and what is "viewer space." No matter what the subject matter of the work is, her installations always explore this facet of art making and viewing.
Using found and discarded materials and objects found throughout Los Angeles, her work now considers the environment, climate change and the impact of humans on the earth. In April of 2018 she began the Instagram page @GoGreenSaveGreen, over one year later she had over 40,000 followers. The goal is to educate people about the climate crisis- the many causes contributing to climate change, what can be done on an individual level to help create systematic change as well as up-to-date news stories, reports and studies.
