Vivia Barron’s work expresses traditional ideas and unspoken realities. She takes old vintage postcards and re-imagines her characters as people of color enjoying family life. A view, she says, has been omitted from the cultural dialogue. Born in the Caribbean, Vivia has shown mastery with telling the untold truths about the reality of cultural mixing and integration as she herself was a product of such heterogeneity having European, African, Asian and Native ancestral roots. Vivia lives in Saint Petersburg, Florida.
