Description

In Aerica Raven Van Dorn's mural tiny gastropods explore new heights in this colorful depiction of social networks. The title, Trailblazers, pays homage to old friendships, new beginnings, and the trails we leave behind.

Aerica’s multidisciplinary career is marked by murals, illustrations, and immersive environments designed to excite the imagination. Drawing inspiration from fact and fiction alike, she explores human issues in mental health, subjective karma, and natural selection. Her obsessively detailed work is characterized by protagonists who reveal the splendor of the unorthodox, the grotesque, and the ordinary. Endlessly fascinated with the human experience, Aerica strives to share the beauty in even our ugliest emotions, and to always reward curiosity with depth, detail, and wonder.
