Mani Price

Mani Price is a NYC-based “visionary” artist. She paints ordinary women into “exotic, self-empowered goddesses.” Her work focuses on exploring women’s sexual empowerment, and the idea of the Divine Feminine. Through her strong, sensual ladies she wants to show women their own strength and encourage them to love themselves. She believes that there is “not enough self-love in the world,” and claims to have seen firsthand how a woman’s self-image can be negatively influenced. “My women are not dainty little orchids to be looked at,” she asserts. “They are Queens, Warriors, Heroines, and Femme Fatales. Rulers in their element.”

"You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive."
