Statement
Mother, sister, daughter, artist, entrepreneur, community advocate, and former National Guard: Marthalicia graduated from La Guardia High School of Music and Arts in lower Manhattan and was a student at S.U.NY New Paltz. Growing up in Harlem, her experiences helped inspire her creative works and continues to do so today. In 2006 Marthalicia, along with her two brothers and sister, formed the M-Squared Art Productions; a collective grounded in the four elements of hip-hop. M-Squared intergrates art and music into the party landscape of New York city with Marthalicia's specialty in live painting.
