Liz Flores is a painter and muralist based in Chicago.
Her work studies the human condition, female form and how movement and shape can be used as a mode of visual storytelling. She explores themes around womanhood, belonging and inner life.
"Painting has always been my way of self-understanding and for viewers, it’s my hope that my work can spark self-reflection in their own life."
Her mural work can be found throughout the Chicagoland Area and New York City. In addition to working with private and commercial clients like Target and Jack Daniels, she has shared her story on the TEDx stage and helped bring an interactive art installation titled ‘The World We Want’ to Chicago's Michigan Avenue.
