About Marisabel Bazan

Based in Los Angeles, California, Marisabel Bazan is a multimedia self-taught Panamanian artist whose art takes people on a journey through a colorful and magical world by illuminating what is best and brightest in the human spirit. Her signature butterflies and inspirational murals create striking, vivid images, where people can interpret their hopeful messages in light of their own experience. Marisabel’s paintings and sculptures are created through a mixed-media technique, three-dimensional effects and a color synergy. They blend together to build a world of transparencies and textures, a reflection of her urban style.

Her work has been exhibited internationally, in public displays such as billboards in Times Square in NYC, murals, galleries and private collections in Los Angeles, Dallas, Miami, Geneva and Panama. Marisabel’s West Hollywood mural “The Dance of the Butterflies” has been selected as one of the top 100 photogenic spots in Los Angeles and top 9 murals in Los Angeles by LA Magazine, and is included in the official tour of the city. Marisabel has collaborated on a limited-edition collection for the LeSportsac brand, sold around the world and featured in Oprah Winfrey’s “Life Lift: The Oprah Blog” on “how a vision board became a bag.” Between 2015-2017, Marisabel’s work was taken into a limited-edition collection of Home-Décor and Fashion items sold in Panama, the U.S. and European markets.

In 2016, Marisabel unveiled a 7-feet tall butterfly sculpture named “Ananda” to support the 2016 UN Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) Zero Discrimination Campaign. “Ananda” was installed in the lobby of UNAIDS building at the UN headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland and became part of the United Nations private art collection. “Ananda” celebrates the inherent contentment, joy and fulfillment of existence and was created for the zero-discrimination campaign as a symbol of transformation, equality and empowerment. This colorful art piece was donated by UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador and First Lady of Panamá, Lorena Castillo de Varela. Additionally, during the last two years, Marisabel has been developing a new art collection called “Popolishis” that represent beings of light that inhabit our unconscious.
