Laiza Fuhrmann (Afro-Brazilian and German. b, 1998) is a fine artist from Massachusetts. She graduated summa cum laude with a BFA in fine arts.
Inspired by multiple topics, Laiza’s diverse artworks share one common goal – to highlight the beauty of life and its subjects. Whether meditating on nature or emphasizing the human form, her art aims to display the beauty she finds through her life experiences. Having dealt with many traumatic situations since a young age (such as bullying, loss, heartbreak, depression, eating disorders and more), Laiza has always found ways to look on the bright side and push through difficult situations by focusing on the beauty in life. Having a strong and optimistic heart, Laiza surrounds herself with plants and crystals and finds solace by affirming others in their journey to self love and acceptance of others. Consequently, artistic expression is a therapeutic practice for Laiza, and she hopes that her art will not only inspire herself but others as well to change the way they see the world and grow appreciation for life, self, and nature. This can be seen clearly through her art.
