Welcome to AMAZONAS
AMAZONAS is Aria Luna’s third public exhibit and her first gallery showing.
Welcome to AMAZONAS, an exploration of the beauty, mystique, and biodiversity of the legendary Amazon rainforest. The creatures, plants, and colors of AMAZONAS will surprise and amaze you, and perhaps even inspire you to learn about them and get more involved in protecting one of the world’s most important ecosystems. Meet them right here on these pages:
The enigmatic Black Jaguar
The stunning Resplendent Quetzal
The awe-and-fear-instilling Green Anaconda
Fish, fireflies, and poisonous frogs
Flowers and fungal networks
and of course, glittering butterflies!
Aria Luna also serves as an Artist for the Amazon for the renowned non profit organization Amazon Aid Foundation. She is generously donating a portion of the proceeds from sales of her work to the foundation to support the critical work they’re doing of protecting the rainforest, raising awareness about the systemic degradation of this critical biosphere, and working on ways to secure more sustainable livelihoods for the people who live there.
We welcome you to explore and immerse yourself in the wonder that is the Amazon. It may be far away, but it touches every single one of us.
