Black Collagist Wednesday: Vanessa Cruz

Curated by Teri Henderson

Discover the work of Vanezza Cruz.


“Born and raised in the Bronx to Dominican parents, Cruz’s upbringing was always rich in color, pattern and imagination. A mixed media artist and graphic designer, her work explores ideas of body image, beauty, cultural identity and representations of women in print by way of mixing aesthetics and self reflection. 

Her preferred methods of work range from collages, printmaking, painting, illustration, murals and handmade books.”


Thank you, Vanezza!!!!
