Ana Serrano is a first-generation, Mexican American born in Los Angeles, California. Inspired by both of these cultural contexts, she creates work utilizing a variety of mediums including drawing, collage, sculpture, and motion. Her work references those in low socioeconomic positions, with particular interest in the customs and beliefs, as well as the architecture, fashion, and informal economies present within this segment of society.
