*BIO: Curator/Artist: Marina Aguilera.

Marina Aguilera raised in Santa Ana, Orange County, California. From the time she could hold a pencil in hand, her imagination flourished. Being a 3rd generation from this city, Marina has always had a deep admiration for her hometown. In the 1970 ’s along with a mural crew, these young Artists created many beautiful and culturally enriched murals throughout the city of Santa Ana. Marina’s 4 children, her Rock, keep her creative flames aglow. Her strength, womanhood, fire and her roots, endlessly pour into her Artwork, inspiring many youth and future artists alike. La Artista... always telling this visual story, with the use of vibrant colors or the intensity of black and white, capturing her audience in every work she’s brought to life.
