Bio + resume ;D

Born in Mexico City in 1994, Atzin started to have a love to the art since the first day she was able to draw, starting imitating cartoons, and painting everything around her, she decided the art was the right thing for her. She started to studied art at the age of 11, starting with an oil painting class, continuing her studies in Chicago IL at the SAIC precollege classes, where she started to use different medias and mix them with oil paint, creating artwork with meaning, artwork that represented what was happening in the society with a lyrical background. She worked in some artistic projects like After Dark art battle at the age of 17 when she won the second place, and art to change the world, with Barbara Koenen. Also she has exhibited around Chicago more than 12 times, in places like "The Fine Art Building" , "Uri- Eichen Gallery", " Wicker Park art center", etcetera. Right now she continue studying at Chicago and Digital Art career, meanwhile she is working in projects that represents an experience in our self prison.
