This piece is what I envision a 1950s ad targeting California would look like. I have a deep
appreciation for retro aesthetics of the 1950s and 1980s, I experimented with composition and color palettes in order to create a unique piece while still keeping the stylistic charm adored in the past and present day. Intertwining a different time and place into the present.
Maria Cendejas was born in Michoacán, Mexico in 1999.
Her family immigrated to the United States when she was a child. Growing up in Northern California, Maria was exposed to intaglio printmaking. She later held an internship with Paulson Fontaine Press (an intaglio printmaking studio located in Berkeley, California), along with a study abroad program with Cow House Studios (located in Wexford, Ireland). She is currently under the mentorship of Harvey Mireles, the founder of La Printeriá, located in San Antonio, Texas. The studio teaches silkscreen printmaking, which has given Maria the opportunity to expand her printmaking knowledge and use of the medium.The themes presented in Maria’s artwork is nostalgia and location.
