Who is Ana Serrano?
Ana Serrano is a first generation Mexican American born in Los Angeles, California 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 socioeconomic positions, with particular interest in the 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 is a recent graduate of Art Center College of Design and currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
I find her work fascinating and unique. Here are some examples of what she does:
From what I can tell… (in the examples of her work I am showing here)… she uses mostly cardboard, paper, paint and photos, to create replica’s of buildings or places that she has photographed herself.
