ARIEL GOLD is available for private commissions to create the perfect original piece for your decor.


This piece was inspired by life in San Francisco. It was a beautiful day, possibly an obscure holiday because more people than usual people seemed to have the day off. I couldn’t get over the vibrancy of the day, all of the colorful people and activities that seemed to be happening in the middle of the afternoon. This was a fun piece to make and always brings me joy when I see it.

About the Artist

Ariel Gold (b. 1985) is inspired by natural landscapes and the energy and light contained within each place. In each non-representational abstract, Gold layers the paint so that it catches the light differently throughout the day allowing the piece to transform based on the angle it is viewed. Heavy texture and color add compositional depth to entice the viewer to approach her pieces in an attempt to discover how the piece was made and the colors that lie underneath. Originally from the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan now living in San Francisco, California, Gold has exhibited nationally and has been featured in various publications.
