Shany Porras : Abstract Painter : Portfolio

Please find within a current representation of my paintings, that I call 'music translations.' Having studied classical music at a young age, and having grown up in a bilingual family, I continue my existence as a translator. My current paintings translate the language of music into abstract paintings.

As of January 1, 2020

The photographs below represent my most recent paintings based on music translations. I work on a variety of music genres which drive the variety of styles represented in the artwork below. The paintings are organized by musical genre or specific music pieces where I created a series.

Generally, a single piece of music will generate 6-18 pieces which may not all be represented here. There are instances where I will only produce one painting for a particular song.


"I see music much in the same way that a film score composer hears music when viewing an image."
