Canada

María Escalona is an artist in-between cultures, nationalities and places. Her work usually reacts, questions and responds to the social tissue we live in and it is deeply rooted and inspired from her Venezuelan origins and Canadian present. To name a few, the themes she addresses are identity, nationality, adaptation, migration, resilience, memories, language, and poetry. Her artworks, essays, and articles have been featured at the VAV Gallery, the 2021 USE Exhibition’s Catalogue, The Concordian, and Bidgala, where she is the Director of Editorial Content. She is also one of the curators of the student art festival Art Matters.
