While there are many talented artists scattered across the globe, not all of them possess that certain quality that makes them stand out. That element that transforms a good painting into truly unique and imaginative artwork. However, Mariela Moode is one of those artists whose work has no problem attracting attention. While born in the Dominican Republic, Moode has done her fair share of traveling the world in order to display her bold and vibrant paintings to the public. With past shows in Korea, Cuba, New York City, Santo Domingo, and a number of other locations, this world-renowned expressive painter has certainly made a name for herself within the arts community. And while Moode may currently reside in Ohio, the popularity of her creative and symbolic pieces reaches far beyond this region.
