Hi, my name is Cindy & I’m an artist from the Bronx. My brand, YDNIC, reads my name backwards because it’s a representation of me and what I’m inspired by.
Being born and raised in the Bronx, I grew up having to be scrappy and resourceful. It cultivated my creative outlook on life and allowed me to have the ability to turn nothing into something. A few years ago, I started creating one-of-one paintings for birthdays, holidays, and special occasions.
After creating art for others, I decided to utilize my talent as a form of expression. I leveraged my developing talents as a form of self-expression to create art for myself. My pieces take inspiration from the nuances of my daily life, upbringing, and anything else I might be inspired by at the moment, making each piece entirely different from the last. As an emerging artist, I don’t like to confine myself to one form or style and welcome experimentation. I create every piece with purpose and a message that hopefully others can resonate with and appreciate its beauty.
