Who are you and what do you do?

Grimanesa Amoros: A human being that adores LIFE! An interdisciplinary artist that was born in Lima, Peru, and creates large-scale light based installations.

How did you get your start?

With a lot of determination, passion, and love for what I do.

From a young age my mother put me in art classes after observing how much I was obsessed with drawing and painting maps.

Initially I went to university to study psychology, but three months before I graduated, I decided to leave my university and fly to New York to pursue my dreams and live the bohemian life, Hemmingway style!

What inspires you?

My travels, architecture, being healthy, and appreciating every single day, as time is truly precious.

What do you like about AZ?

The AMAZING LIGHT in the mornings!

Where can we see you(r) work?

You can find my work on my website 😉

What would you like to accomplish before you die?

The thought of dying has always been far from my thoughts, as I truly never think about it! I live in the present moment, but I would say I’d like to live part of the year in a castle close to the ocean, and hear the constant movement of the waves.

What is your mantra?

Life is a Romance with the Unknown
