Creativity is an act of defiance.
— Twyla Tharp

Erika Belavy is an entrepreneur, freelance photographer, avid yogi and digital nomad. Born in Canada, she caught the travel bug from an early age, and has since visited over 40 countries. 

Leading a creative life has always been at the core of Erika's existence. She began communicating through art in her childhood, with painting and drawing as her chosen modes of self expression. It wasn't until she moved to Paris, however, that her passion for photography expanded. Intersecting travel, nature and spirituality as her sources of inspiration, Erika aims to explore the duality of solitude and inter-connectedness in her work, questioning the collective ego and individualist mindset.

As a strong believer in the power of art and the internet to raise consciousness in the world, Erika dedicated herself entirely to the field of creative expression by founding Riot Art Gallery, an online platform dedicated to the next generation of art collector. 

Erika has her BComm in Marketing and completed an MA in Digital Media Management at Hyper Island. She is based in Paris, France.
