Cartonlandia (acrylic, collage, and mixed media on cardboard) by Ana Serano
Ana Serrano is a first generation Mexican American born in Los Angeles in 1983. Inspired by both of the cultural contexts in her life, she creates work utilizing a variety of mediums including drawing, collage, sculpture, and motion. Her work bears reference to those in low socio-economic positions, with particular interest in their customs and beliefs, as well as the architecture, fashion, and informal economies, present within this segment of society. A current theme explored in her work is the socio-cultural aspects of drug trafficking, and the branding and acceptance of the drug lord lifestyle. She recently graduated from Art Center College of Design with honors, and currently resides in Los Angeles.Take a look at Ana's blog for lots more paper based colourful-ness.
