Born in the state of California in 1984, Carina Lomeli moved with her family to Santiago Tangamandapio, Michoacan, Mexico (1990-1994). In these years she was musically inclined and was involved heavily in church. In 1994 she again moved, to Phoenix Arizona (1994-2003), where she discovered her effortless ability to imagine and create visual stories. Teachers encouraged Carina to become a Fine Artist. The outcome has been that of revolution and struggles through acquiring all skills and tools to become a great artist and observer after graduating from the Academy of Art University. She has since worked with many artists, revolutionary organizations and has shown at Venues like the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts. Not only to make and show works of art but to also help the community that has been so supportive of a unique and challenging passion.
“As a Political, Impressionist, and a Xicana Artist, my life requires direct engagement in the community. I observe the world with concern for the future and express my anxiety in my paintings. I hope my works to be a point of conversation and inspiration for all that seek to change the current global system. A system that pushes war, debt, and hatred.”
This half Century, many manifestations have sprung up in many parts of the world. Carina had been following movements since the Migrant Rights march in 2006 and continues to participate in a wide range of manifestations that are anti-MONSANTO, anti-apartheid, anti-violence, and anti-discrimination among many others. She expresses the importance of creativity and faith in Humanity as we together find the true meaning of justice, government, and community.
