Victoria Maldonado

Victoria Maldonado is a mixed-media artist, painter, illustrator, and printmaker. Raised in North Long Beach, she began pursuing the arts at a young age. Curiosity feeding into her need for creativity, she treats every new project and skillset with new eyes and a desire to learn. Her work makes commentary on current social issues and as a means for self-healing through personal experiences. Refusing to be forced into any one category, she creates based on concept rather than medium. Through the use of imagery, Victoria finds ways to educate, celebrate and create dialogue about marginalized experiences that the public viewer is often misinformed or unaware about.
