Gabriela Alemán

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

Hi! I'm an illustrator, visual artist, writer and organizer born and raised in San Francisco’s Mission District.  Resonating with the aesthetic of comics and pop art, my work consists of boldly colored graphics that highlight Latinx subjects and cultural iconography not found in most mainstream or Latinx art. I do illustration part-time and create work for print, websites, and social media. 

Self-taught, I began drawing and experimenting with different materials and mediums as a means to explore my experiences as a first-generation, queer, child of Central American immigrants. My subjects range from folklore dancers to reimagined cultural iconography. I'm devoted to using the rich colors of my community and my lens as a Latinx creative to bring visibility to the Central American diaspora.
