Always exploring where my personal identity ends and cultural traditions begin….

Lorimar Matos is a full-time stay-at-home mom and artist based in Chicago. Her art is centered around the use of bright colors, the human figure, and Puerto Rican folk art as vehicles to explore the impact of growing up as a first-generation Puerto Rican stateside American. Lorimar hopes her work brings a sense of joy and warmth to its viewers as she uses her work as a way to escape feelings of anxiousness and depression, to answer questions about her identity and exercise a conscious daily decision to make her own joy and happiness.
