Alejandra Olivos

Student
at
University of Washington

Has roots extending from the PNW to Mexico. I'm an artist, daughter, dreamer, feminist, thinker and siSTAR. I value love, justice, people, art, and healing. I recognize as a person that holds multiple identities (womxn, fluid, college educated, first generation, Xicana) that with the knowledge I have learned and continue to seek, that my entire being is political. I am in constant journey of unlearning, uncovering, reflecting, thinking and growing as my consciousness continues to reroot. Through bright colors and bold lines I ask the person that is entering my world(s) to keep in mind, that they will experience my art differently, through my stream of consciousness for each art piece I recognize that each one of us has lived through and comes from different places. We must remember to honor the ancestors, and heal ourselves and those around us to move forward. I am in the process of undoing how trauma through colonialism and my lived experiences have impacted my mind, body, and soul.
