In the US Diana made her first solo show called WIND in the Butterfly Lounge of the Miami Beach Botanical Garden in 2019. Diana Helman work is known for the use of strong and vibrant colors and Christian faith has been the driving force behind her art. Each piece of art is a prayer or conversation with God. The graphic stains and textures are symbols intended to unite the thoughts between the spiritual experience and how it is felt. Her Acrylics Painting walks between expressionism and Street Art.

Artist Statement

This painting is an Acrylic on canvas full of layers and texture. My painting ideas come out of my thoughts about God and the Scripture.

How it fits into contest

According to Ephesians 6:10-18, our battles must be in heavenly realms. This painting is about praying in the Spirit and how praying leads us to a heavenly dimension. When we are praying, we are able to leave tears and pain behind, and get into a powerful environment, where we receive our armor, and stand firm when the evil day comes.
