About Me

My Background

image3

   

Liliflor was born and raised in Los Angeles, her inspiration comes from her upbringing, family, community and underground cultural movements. As a first generation Mexican American “Chicana” she navigated thru L.A’ art scene during the 80’s and 90’s hip hop movement. Graffiti subculture was a critical part in her development, inspiration and path towards a professional art and educational career. Liliflor hones her artistic ability to create vital images on canvas and walls that are representative of Angelinos. She is a cultural art educator championing youth in the arts, using art as a tool for education, cultural awareness, civic engagement, healing and transformation. 

Lilia’s strength lies in her bold approach in integrating Nahuatl cosmology aesthetic experimentation. She brings knowledge of her indigenous roots to bear in her work that dignifies the everyday people of Los Angeles. Her artwork weaves various subjects such as spiritual, urban environments, women, children, indigenous cosmology and culture. Aesthetically Lilia’s work reproduces familiar visual symbols and iconography, that enables her to create a composition of multilayered visuals and storytelling. The themes in her fine art and murals are combinations of ideas inspired by the communities she serves, as an artist, muralist and educator. The lively color schemes bind the iconography with the subject matter and composition. 

My Medium

I use many different mediums, aerosol, acrylics, sharpie ink, and pastels. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style. People ask me whats your style? I say I'm an expressionist. I paint, draw, use various mixed media, I do altar and art installations, I love to use found objects and up cycle materials, I'm crafty with sewing, I design and make jewelry, as well as make costumes or regalia. I also perform, write, sing and like making funny memes and videos. 

My Inspiration

I enjoy gardening, indigenous healing modalities creating healing spaces for women of color, reading, writing, living with the moon cycles and spending time with family. In my spare time I love hiking and biking.  Many of my pieces are directly influenced by nature. I am interested in learning nahuatl cosmology. My work reflects indigenous iconography and contemporary images.

Liliflor Art is branching out!

As some of you know I have been dealing with some medical issues. I have been slow in the last 2 years but I have never stopped. I did take time to do some much needed self care. During this time I sketched and also painted when ever I could. I  wrote my intentions and visualized my growth as a creative artist. 


Plans to expand will include:

1) A yearly art calendar

2) An organizer planner book with my art illustrations. 


I have been learning how to make it happen in the last 2 years and almost done with my goals to make it a reality. 


Thank you for your support and encouragement!
