Pura Vida – Story behind the artwork
Pura Vida is a piece about of the project ‘Where two worlds collide’ which celebrates all things that live in and around the ocean and rainforest of Costa Rica – especially focusing on the area where these two worlds meet.
Pura Vida is a common phrase used in Costa Rica and translates to 'Pura Life'. I wanted to create something that sums up Costa Rica for me in one painting. Creating a fantasy and dream like world, playing with Vibrant colours, characters and composition. All reference images for this painting were taken by me whilst exploring costa Rica in 2019-2020. The keel-billed Toucan featured in this painting was inspired by my visit to the Toucan Rescue Ranch, where I had the pleasure to meet Patrick. He was one of the oldest residents at the Toucan Rescue Ranch. Patrick was confiscated as an illegal pet from someone's home and I got to see him enjoying his days at the Toucan Rescue Ranch, San Jose. I was captivated by his inquisitive funny character and knew he was going to be the star of the show in Pura Vida.
