Instructor: Natalia Arbelaez is a Colombian American artist, born & raised in Miami, FL to immigrant parents. Her work takes the place of a storyteller, from her personal narratives of her family’s immigration to the research of pre-Columbian South American presence, to her American, latchkey, afterschool cartoon upbringing. Each of these identities play a role in her work to illustrate a self-portrait of what it is like to be a Mestizo, Colombian, and American hybrid. She combines these stories with research, familial narratives, and cartoon embellishments that create surreal stories, much to her efforts, of the likes of Gabriel García Márquez. A way to autobiographically narrate history with its ups and downs of humor and tears.

In partnership with The Color Network.
