Meet Ariel Zorrilla. This week's featured young talent is a humble model and Iphone Collage Artist out of Brownsville, Brooklyn! Ariel first discovered his interest in art while in 7th grade. Thanks to a teacher that started an art program where it was previously non-existent at his school, Ariel began to develop his talent as a painter. He's been painting for 6 years, but upon his discovery of collage work he prefers the storytelling outlet that it allows. Some artists that inspire his work include Chuck Close and Frida Kahlo. He respects that these artists draw mainly from experience because he believes that it's way more impactful. With goals of soon attending Art Basel, Ariel plans to continue developing his artwork and expanding his outlets through work with fellow artists and musicians. Look out for Ariel and be sure to check out more of his work below.
