Melanie Vazquez is a multi-disciplinary artist from Posen, Illinois. Melanie’s concerns are to focus on providing authentic solutions and aesthetic to her work that reminds the audience of Mexican culture through digital work, prints, paintings, murals, film photography, and interactive projects. Her work utilizes plenty of vibrant colors, symbols of Mexican culture, and depictions of personal experiences. Melanie has shown her work with 1001 South State, Tiger Strikes Asteroid, Hokin Gallery, and has collaborated with her friends and colleagues for Dock 6 Design. Melanie received her BA in Fine Art with a minor in Visual Arts Management at Columbia College Chicago.
