About the Art
Liana Z. Weber is an Austrian-American artist whose work addresses the cultural constructs of sexuality, power, identity and gender. Weber blends imagery from mythical, religious and historical artistic iconography with pop cultural references in order to replace the traditional use of female subjectivity with brash unapologetic female figures. Most important to Weber is that she creates thought provoking work that can be easily interpreted and appreciated by any individual, regardless of background. She believes art should be accessible to all. If topical issues are to move forward, everyone must be invited to the discussion.
About the Artist
Weber received her bachelors degree in art with a focus on painting from the University of Nevada, Reno. A year after graduating, Weber moved to her father's hometown of Innsbruck, Austria. Several months into her stay she suffered a traumatic hand injury, severing most of the tendons and nerves in her right hand. While the operation was successful, months of physical therapy was needed to regain proper movement and feeling; therapy which also included regular drawing. Immediately her love and passion for the medium was rekindled and she decided to make it her business. Over the past 5 years she has expanded her portfolio from her atelier in Innsbruck & built her art into a successful e-commerce brand. Her work has been exhibited globally in both group & solo shows, as well as recognised & featured in Bäng Magazine (Spring 2019) & King House Art Magazine (Dec. 2020). Her work is currently included in the Superfine! Art Fair NYCx3 (Wo)men installation & is a finalist in the King House Gallery "The Year Is 2020" art exhibition.
Weber's work has recieved praise from numerous other artists, including Andrew W. K, Dave Mason, & Helmut Zwerger. While her main focus is on drawing & design, she is also skilled in a variety of other fields, including, but not limited to:
- graphic design - content creation - marketing & advertising - social media management - art direction - event planning - e-commerce - SEO -
