Anita Arellano

Passion for art and politics come together in my work. I am inspired to capture truth and authenticity as an artist whether in a portrait, still-life, figure, landscape or abstract. My cultural background is a huge influence in the artwork I create. I am Chicana and Native American and find that being considered an “other” in my native land makes me stronger, bolder, more determined, more reflective, and more insightful in presenting this unique viewpoint in my work.
