Marilyn Escobedo

My name is Marilyn Escobedo and I am graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an emphasis in Painting. I am a multidisciplinary artist who uses various mediums such as oil, acrylic, and enamel paints. I also utilize paint chips, screen printing, and found objects in my work. My body of work has been a personal journey that has led to an investigation of my ancestor’s history and the embracing of ancestral art, the discovery of my Latinx identity, and an acute awareness of the inequity across social groups in the current political climate.
