Maria Servellón

The New Drawing Room

I am a visual explorer and storyteller who uses film, digital media, design, music, and dance to express truths and possibilities. I utilize experimental and narrative approaches to create complex characters, movements, and concepts. With these, I attempt to satisfy my curiosity about the world and understand my relationship with it.

My artwork is a conscious and intuitive exploration of an intersectional identity consisting of visual and historical influences. By utilizing Magic Realism, I pay homage to the fluidity of culture, gender, memories, and dreams.

My art-making odyssey aims to continue transcending pre-established norms and to exist in and out of the digital sphere. These realizations solidify the bridge of mutual connection between myself and my audience.
