Sofia Maldonado: Un Verano en Nueva York


Product Description

Sofia Maldonado

Un verano en Nueva York celebrates a special kind of woman.  For many women, Sofia Maldonado says, ‘’their hairstyles, make up and fashion are about self-expression. It is not about looking cheap or ghetto, which is the stereotype that many people, including many within our own communities, have of them…I am interested in recognizing the women of the hood, the women of El Barrio,” she says. “I feel it is important.”

The gold in the words of Un verano en Nueva York is designed in an abstract style, reflecting Maldonado’s own current stage as an artist who is doing more abstract work. This drawing represents a combination of Maldonado’s iconic female imagery and her newer focus on abstraction. The piece, she says, is not the typical, more detailed silkscreen style of work that Puerto Rico is known for. She decided to use a simple design on purpose: “I like to push the boundaries.”
