Honoring My Mexican American Heritage in Narrative, Cultural, & Mythological Scenes
This ongoing, new body of work is about remembrances and speaks of my own experiences growing up biculturally and my appreciation for my Mexican cultural roots.
TRADICIONES Lucha Libre, Loteria, Posadas, Piñatas, Quinceñerias, all these forms of entertainment are the backbone of anticipation, community, and gaiety. The Mexican culture is a product of the mix of indigenous practices and traditions with the European colonial presence that strongly impacted all areas of life.
