LauruS Myth

Born in Santa Clara, California in 1987, LAuruS Myth recalls one of her earliest memories – the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake. Who knew how those earth-shaking vibrations would resonate within this young child? As a youngadult, she enrolled at the University of California, Santa Cruz in 2005, majoring in Fine Art. During her junior year, she studied abroad at Massey University in Wellington, New Zealand. Inspired by the Maori and Aboriginal cultures and experiences in nature, she returned home and began creating paintings based on her heritage, fusing Celtic and Chinese patterns to convey the unity of polar opposites.
Pushing the limits of pattern work and color, she uses elements of her relationship to nature to inspire the structure and concepts of her paintings. She graduated in December 2009 with a BFA and was presented with an Award for Excellence in the Arts. Soon thereafter she began live painting and exploring the vibrations and energy fields of public spaces. Realizing her connection to Silicon Valley, as her parents are employed in the semiconductor industry, her art would bridge nature and technology by overlaying silicon wafer designs with patterns native to the environment.
LAuruS spent three months in 2010 in Nepal to volunteer in environmental conservation. During her stay, she painted a total of ten murals for several communities and studied the first degree of Reiki. Her work began to flow visually and conceptually to spread awareness of all energy forms: natural,created, and synthesized. Recent travels have also led her to experience the histories of ancient and modern Egypt in late 2011. Finding a deep connection to every culture she permeates, LAuruS celebrates the varieties of culture in her paintings. Her work portrays patterns, symbols, vibrations and experiences within nature and technology, expressing the constant search inward for spirituality and outward for a collective power.
