About

A story of heritage and legacy documented through art, meant to be shared and experienced.

Misia Violencia was what my grandfather would call my grandmother when she was upset. It means Mrs. Violence. She was a strong, intelligent, determined woman who only showed me love, kindness and passion. As I became an adult, I learned about her flaws, only to make me more eager about my past and committed to make repairments.

Misia Violencia has been a source of inspiration for a long time now, and she has become a symbol of struggle, power, love and beauty. My work inherently has traces of these qualities, and it has helped me document and shape an identity I still struggle to comprehend.

I was born and raised in Cali, Colombia, and had no choice but to migrate to the US when I was 15. Boston is my home now, and I'm forever grateful with this place for it has forged the person that I am. But I yearn to learn about the place where I come from and the history behind its people. I believe acknowledging our roots and learning about them is essential to improve as a society. Keeping our past close enriches our culture as this helps us empathize, make amends and reconcile the past with the present in hopes to build a better future.

Over all, I would like my work to be about gender, race, ethnicity, migration and identity decolonization. This process will be a long one, as I explore both technique and concept. And this "statement" will change a lot, but I would like to invite you to be part of my journey as I discover what my work and heritage are really about. I hope you enjoy what you witness.
