Maria de Los Angeles was born in 1988 in Michoacán, Mexico and immigrated to Santa Rosa California in 2000 with her family.
De Los Angeles’s subject is both from personal experience and from the larger political conversations surrounding migration. Creating compositions of spontaneous drawings with images and actions, which reference the human experience of moving from one space to another, but convey a fragmentary idea of the larger issues.
De Los Angeles graduated with an Associates degree in Fine Arts from Santa Rosa Junior College in 2010, a BFA in Painting from Pratt in 2013 and with a MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Yale University in 2015. Currently teaches as a visiting instructor at Pratt Institute and is a current artist in Residency at Mana Contemporary.
De Los Angeles recently had a solo exhibition at Front Art Space and Pratt Institute, and in a group exhibition at Garis and Hahn in New York.
