Paulina Padilla | Artist Series Tote Bag
Paulina Padilla is a Mexican cross-disciplinary artist and educator with Arab blood and American nationality, who is based in Toronto. Interpreting the social and political structures in which she is inscribed leads her to problematize the power dynamics she encounters. It is important for her that cultural heritages strive to find global common grounds in the present, since struggle and ecstasy belong to all of us at all times, for we are one.
Her work has been exhibited collectively in Mexico, Vancouver and Toronto. She has experience working in the education department of a contemporary museum in Querétaro (MACQ), where she assisted Tanya Shultz (Pip n Pop) for the installation Together We Light Up the Sky (2018). Although she has mainly been exposed to realism working alongside Mexican oil painters, she has been influenced by teachers such as Landon Mackenzie and Scott Everingham. She went to school both at Emily Carr U and OCADU.
