Aryanah Rivera is feminist artist from Buffalo, New York. She graduated from SUNY Purchase in 2018 with a BFA in Painting and Drawing. Her body of work is about female fear and the female figure in the horror genre. Her vivid, visceral paintings are derivative of 1950’s-70’s pulp-fiction novel covers and cult classic horror films. Rivera’s work balances the grotesque and the enticing in texture, color, and content in an exploration of the terrors of women.
