"This print is from a painting i created from my "Fantasy" series. The painting is about a girl who lives in both worlds of the surreal (water) and reality (land). In the water world she is guided by two fish who possess the power in which she submerges herself in all wild fantasies and sets free from any inhibitions. All her desires, sexually and emotionally, are satisfied here. Romanticizing her every experience she knows it is only ephemeral. The moment is captured, frozen in time, where she is transitioning from her euphoric state onto the demands of her true reality world on land. After all, she is in control of both worlds that coexist in her galaxy." - Indie

Indie Returns With Fantasy

1xRUN Thru Interview
Fantasy by Indie

1xRun: Tell us a bit about this piece, was it part of a recent series?
Indie: I love the way the print captures the colors and textures of the original painting.  I started this painting in March, put it down for a couple of months then finished it in May 2013. I used a variety of mediums including enamel, latex and spray paints, along with acrylics, paper, watercolor, oil paste, glitter and plaster.

This painting is the featured piece from my recent series, Fantasy, which was my first solo show in New York City this past May. As of right now it is literally being packed up and being shipped to Beverly Hills for an auction in November.

1xRun: Tell us how the idea and execution came about?
Indie: I wanted to create a theme of fantasy inspired by ocean life. So the theme came about real life inspiration turned into a sort of fairy tale art imitates life. Some of the content is top secret stuff but you can peek through and see some clues. Honestly, I no longer see them as old Hollywood starlets. It’s all about the pose and expression – that’s why I carefully curate which ones I will work with. The female portraits in the paintings are sirens – like the spirit of the painting depicting the mood and emotions of the painting.

1xRun: How long did the piece take from start to finish?
Indie: A couple of days. This was the first painting I created from the series so I solely focused on it. It set the tone for the rest of the series – the paintings in the show.

1xRun: What is unique about this piece compared with your other work?
Indie: For the first time I used plaster to alter the texture and experimented with glitter and watercolors. Also this painting was the first time I started to accent the features of each portrait. I wanted to have more fun with their beauty. I still love the black and white photographic aspects but I wanted to step it up. They are too beautiful to not to play with them.

1xRun: Why should people buy this print?
Indie: I put my heart and soul into my work and I want to share it with the world. Plus, it is a great opportunity to add an exclusive piece of art in their collection.

1xRun: Describe this piece in one gut reaction word.
Indie: Mystic.

1xRun: You’ve been staying busy since your last RUN, what have you been up to?
Indie: Since my last run, I have had two solo shows a couple of group shows. My collaboration with MAC Cosmetics was released in the US and now internationally. For the first time, I went to paint in Reykjavik, Iceland. I am grateful that this year I have been able to produce such a large body of work. I also released my first ever zine, so it was exciting to venture into a different zone.

1xRun: What do you have coming up in the next 2-3 months?
Indie: Right now preparing for my next solo show in October in Cologne, Germany. Getting ready to head out to Paris and London again. I want to keep the constant creative flows going. And work on zine edition number 2. I will also painting some mixed media murals thorough New York City and maybe some collaborative walls with some artist friends.

1xRun: Anything else we may have forgotten?
Indie: Big thank you to everyone who has supported and purchased a print throughout first 3 RUNs!

About the Artist

Location: Washington Heights, New York

Indie184, born in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico, is a graffiti artist and graphic designer hailing from Washington Heights, New York City. Growing up all over NYC she began to participate in the graffiti culture in 2001. Determined to express herself to the world through art, she withdrew from business college to teach herself how to sew, paint and produce graphic design. Influenced by all things colorful, happy and sexy, she is known for her classic New York simple yet playful feminine graffiti style infused with exuberant bold colors bursting with hearts, stars and bubbles. You can find her graffiti pieces in the streets from the South Bronx to Oslo.

Graffiti is the lexicon of the street. As far back as the stone age, the element of leaving ones mark, has been communicated through the walls of our environment. Indie184’s transformative approach to graffiti awakens the spirit of the contemporary art world. Los Angeles, Paris, and New York have been host to her last three solo exhibitions over the past year. Her drive to create art both on the streets and in galleries, has taken her around the world from Bronx to Berlin, over the last decade. A burgeoning phenomenon in graffiti, Indie’s work strikes balance between the energy of the streets, and the power of femininity. The imagery, color, texture, and subject define a level of clarity in her application of art to canvas, concrete, and clothing. The use of aerosols, plaster, paste, acrylic paint, and paper give the viewer a wide exchange of the media reflected in the traditional graffiti setting, re-imagined into wall art intended for use in a nontraditional graffiti setting. The art of branding a particular location has evolved from nuisance to renaissance, and laymen and fine art collector alike converge in a space of somewhere between here and there. This dreamy element of romanticized figurative collaging averse to the elements of raw graffiti, all delicately packaged in beautiful messages told through color and words.

The collision of thought process and application express a voice screaming from the roof tops that, she has arrived. For 13 years now, the Dominican-American, New York native has been propagating her message on the streets she calls home and walls worldwide, she calls her own. Indie’s work has been featured commercially from best-selling video games like Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto IV to premium brands like MAC cosmetics. She has been a contributing artist in exhibitions and auctions worldwide and an outspoken voice in the street art community of New York City. Her place in the archives of the contemporary voice of street art is fostering a growth that is quickly taking her to the top of her profession. Her collaborative work with world renowned female street artists like Swoon, Fafi, and Aiko put her in a class of the future of female street art influencers. Her rise does not come without hard work. As entrepreneur, artist and mother, Indie is the definition of modern women living in the renaissance of an art form that is part of the vocabulary of a generation.
