About Carla Bank

I have a passion for painting that has been with me since childhood. That coupled with my love of pop culture, brings my vision to canvas. Being a native of Mexico, and having been a Chicagoland resident for many years, I bring a unique perspective to modern art. My inspiration is all around me in this great city and my use of color stems from the celebrated artistic heritage of my home country.

I paint familiar people, places and things and the ultimate goal of my art is to bring joy to those who view it. I don't limit my art to canvas, other materials such as wood and glass have also been vehicles for artistic expression. My process usually involves traditional brushes, but most recently I have experimented with finger painting, and found it to be another liberating way to express my creativity.

My love of art, color and pop culture grows stronger each day and through my painting, I hope to express that love and my artistic vision, and continue to spread beauty and joy.
