Primer registro de mujeres artistas visuales
mexicanas, mexico-americanas y chicanas en Los Ángeles
First registry of Mexican, Mexican-American and
Chicana Visual Artists in Los Angeles
Dulce was born and raised in a rural village in Jalisco, México where she began drawing from a very young age. Because of her family’s financial struggle, Dulce worked in the agricultural fields and sold doodles to her classmates, sparking her interest in art and in social inequality. When she turned eleven years old, her family and she migrated to California. Due to her lack of
English language skills, drawing was Dulce’s only way of communication. In 2018 she graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a major in Media Studies and a minor in Practice of Art. Inspired by the 1920s Mexican muralist movement, contemporary Mexican carving art, and her musical family’s story-telling and rebellious corrido style, Dulce’s art makes
political and social statements to raise awareness and mobilize around issues faced by her community. In her efforts to unite people across borders, Dulce has showcased her work and collaborated in projects in México, Perú, Cuba, and across the United States. She uses painting, screen printing, watercolor, graphic design and performance art to address issues such as corruption, racism, sexism, immigration, international policy and trafficking. She aspires to continue mobilizing through multidisciplinary arts and building platforms to make demanding justice through political art careers a sustainable, accessible, and safe practice for historically marginalized groups.
