Anna E. Siqueiros

Biography

 

Anna Siqueiros grew up in a family for whom political activism went hand-in hand. Her great uncle, the renowned and controversial David Alfaro Siqueiros, whose murals depict the plight of the poor and disenfranchised, is considered to be one of Mexico’s three great muralists in Mexico and around the world (along with Diego Rivera and Jose Clemente Orozco). Her father was also a political activist behind the scenes Carlos Siqueiros, worked with Cesar Chaves in giving a helping hand in the organizing The United Farm Workers Union. Anna regards her passion to inspire social change through art as her birthright.

 

After painting her first mural at the age of three with her mothers lip stick and makeup. Anna was encouraged to explore her artistic curiosity by her mother Ofelia and Carlos Siqueiros who supplied her with per, pencils and paints. And taught her a moral sensibility of her environment and others around her.

 

As a teenager, Anna was selected from thousands of her peers to display her work at the Triton Museum of Art in Santa Clara and received and Outstanding Participation Award. She subsequently earned a Certificate of Fine Arts from Otis College. In 1989, she worked with children with cancer as an art director and counselor for the American Cancer Society in New Mexico. Anna was also twice chosen to participate in the City of Los Angeles Community of Angels Project and sponsored by the Wilshire Grand Hotel (2000 and 2001), for which she created life-sized, painted, Paper-mache’ with holographic angels for public display. She recently has been published in the calendar 2008 for the Latino heritage month for the Cultural Affairs Department of Los Angeles. She continues her career as an Artist for commission works as well as showing her works in galleries and public spaces.

 

Anna’s present work is a personal statement about movement. She expresses that it is a dance about creation and a message and she wants the viewer to feel a sense of peace and tranquility by guiding the eye through time and space—an entrance through passageways of sheer doors and windows that produces another state of mind from the past to the present in to a paralleled universe to bring forth a harmony with ones environment. She prefers working in a variety of media—unison of acrylics, mixed media, and collage. Music plays a large roll when she is painting. For it creates a feeling that allows her to make free-flowing gestures of paint across the canvas—expressing feelings of past and present while her brush dances.
