I work in a style called “Recycled Painting,” which consists of painting on the backside of discarded paper packaging—mostly from food products and waste papers. For a long time, the act of drawing on any available surface was a fun daily practice for me. Gradually, painting on found surfaces turned into a ritual, and then therapy. Soon, I realized I had discovered a personal technique for accessing my subconscious mind and a powerful storytelling tool. My paintings talk about death, life, war, sexuality, growth, pain, femininity, discrimination, and immigration on account of my obsession with food waste. Painting on food packages is a powerful way to protest and raise awareness about the amount of food people thoughtlessly discard, while raising awareness on topics that are dear to my heart.
