Diana Solis was born in Monterrey, Mexico, but has made Chicago her home for over 20 years. The characters in her drawings often appear whimsical and childlike, and like fairy tales and myths they hold a darker and more challenging story than meets the eye.

Her urn has an orange background with prominent figures around the center. Solis drew from visual characters she has created over time. The characters deal with issues of colonization, helping one another, eating, etc. Her work combines figurative with abstract sensibilities. The unseen within the obvious, where this takes her is always an adventure. The crossing over and blurring of the lines, animals with human features, nature, trees becoming somewhat human, imaginary hybrids in a state of change.
