Hi, I’m Dariela, but my friends and family call me Dari.
I live in Zug, a small and cute city in the heart of Switzerland. I was born in sunny Mexico but raised in snowy Switzerland. As I’m half Mexican and half Swiss I know both cultures very well.
I love the colourful part of the Mexican culture and can identify a lot with it, that’s why my artist name is ‘’dariela izel’’. ‘’Izel’’ means ‘’unique’’ in Nahuatl, which is the language of the ‘’Aztecas’’ (the ancient culture in central Mexico).
One of my biggest inspirations is Frida Kahlo. Not only because she was a great artist, she was a strong personality too. I love the way she dressed and the charismatic way she influenced women around the globe. For me Instagram is a modern way to express art. So I hope you’ll like and enjoy my kind of art.
