Aragón, Lucia

printmaking, drawing, wall painting

Lucia Cristerna Aragón is a visual artist who is influenced by her Mexican heritage and her current surroundings in Norway. She works primarily between the mediums of wall paintings, video projections, printed media and drawing, in which she questions the boundaries between socio political matters and the intangible myths and beliefs across cultures. Her artwork goes from intimate etchings as visual poetry to large scale wall paintings in public spaces.
