Raised in Kamiah, Idaho along the Clearwater River, artist Amelia Oswold said she didn’t discover her passion for art until her early twenties.
“When I found Any Warhol and the pop art scene, that’s when it really took off for me,” she said.
Bright and bold colors are a hallmark of Oswald’s style, with kaleidoscope effects encompassing her often female subjects in a digital collage of patterns and shapes. She calls her brand The Bold Generation, and shares her artwork and videos through social media.
“I always try to have some kind of message, something relevant to society and our time.”
Oswald said she is inspired by the loud and proud style of graffiti and street art, and even sticker bombed her hometown to forcefully blast a location with art. “Something about that impulsive display of creativity has always really excited me.”
“The theme is confidence in oneself, and the magic of life,” she said.
