Liz Flores is a Chicago based artist and muralist, painting the human form through shapes and colors. Working primarily with acrylic paint on canvas, her work is a reaction to life, an emotion, or a memory.
"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 Lululemon and Sephora, she has shared her story on the TEDx stage and brought an interactive art installation titled ‘The World We Want’ to Chicago's Michigan Avenue.
