About the artist:
Daniela Garcia Hamilton (b.1995) is a first generation Mexican-American painter. Her work revists the rituals and traditions she experienced as a child of immigrant parents. Color and pattern is integrated throughout her work as she describes the vibrancy of her cultural traditions through portraits of her family members. Settings are fabricated to draw attention to social-political commentary on past and current immigrant experiences. As she went through her higher education at CSULB, she began to reflect on her traditions through the American lens. Contemporary American tile patterns are used as the veil through which she remembers these events. She received her BFA in Drawing and Painting from CSULB in 2018, shortly after she received her Teaching Credential. She is currently pursuing an MFA as a candidate at CSUN while teaching full time as a High School Art teacher in Thousand Oaks. Her work has been exhibited throughout the California Coast, with galleries such as Artbug Gallery, TAG Gallery, Luna Anais Gallery, Artshare LA, the Irvine Fine Arts Center and Residency Art Gallery. She has been a keynote speaker for the undocumented commencent at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and continues to hold a strong connection to her Mexican, immigrant roots.
