Delania Alma is a contemporary artist residing in Miami Florida. Born and raised in New York City by Dominican parents, Delania recalls her passion for art as early as 12 years old. One of her early pieces was submitted to an art contest that won and was displayed in the Bronx museum of Art in New York City. Delania’s work varies from abstract, contemporary, to surrealism. She has degrees in Psychology and Nursing (specializing in pediatrics) and speaks both English and Spanish. Her work is mainly influenced and inspired by children, dreams, music, weather, and travel.Delania paints “del alma,” which in Spanish means “from the soul.” Her paintings are full of saturated colors and layers of emotions that reference subliminal stories. From canvases, murals and a music album cover. Her paintings can also be found in restaurants in NYC and major children hospitals in NYC and Miami. Upcoming works include book cover for children’s book “la niña ostra” and her next series to be exhibited in gallery of INDOTEL, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.


Delania’s work, no matter what medium she chooses, can only be described as nothing short of sheer originality and good taste. Her art is all about the constant strive for originality, creativity, and expression. She is a transformational artist who does not fear exploration and innovation as well as change or modernism. Delania constantly is mixing up her style and experimenting with her craft. Her exceptional approach to art, with her interesting choice of materials and flare, is a pleasure to observe. She understands how to pay great attention to detail when it comes to creating art, including its underlying meanings and purpose.
The contemporary art world is vibrant and booming like never before and it’s a twenty-first-century phenomenon, a global industry in its own right. Contemporary artists seek the power to astonish, satisfy and challenge: Delania’s artwork achieves all of these things. She showcases art that the public may not ordinarily have access to outside of a large urban environment within a welcoming, creative, and inspirational platform. She is a true artist of not only painting but of innovation, lifestyle and artistic interpretation. As time goes on, Delania will continue to reinvent herself and delve deeper into the world of art by utilizing a wide range of mediums and taking an intimate approach to art direction and design, building her brand and developing more designs and artwork. We will all be looking forward to seeing what she accomplishes next with her limitless style and creativity.
