Nicole Salcedo is a first generation Cuban American, born and raised in Miami, Florida. She considers herself to be an interdisciplinary artist with a passion for drawing. Her work is inspired by nature and the human emotions. Her plant based drawings and paintings – known as “junglevision” – aims to create playful and more approachable jungle landscape. Jungles, like any area of pure wilderness, represents her deep and ever present longing to escape into nature, at the same time they hold her core fears of survival. Turning a dense jungle into a fun landscape not only bypasses those fears but turns this “wilderness” into a more fanciful and inviting place.
