Micaela Anaya

Self-taught, Chicago-born, artist Micaela Anaya has been cultivating her craft for fifteen years. Her figurative works, painted with a deep and vivid palette, speak to the social realist tradition of her family’s native Mexico. The subject matter is at once an exaltation of the sacred feminine and a challenge to the systems of oppression that seek to diminish it. Micaela believes in art as a necessary means of individual expression and a collective means for social change.
