“Effloresce”

When: Sat., March 4, 6-9 p.m. 2017

Without a background in realm of graffiti, Mexico City-based artist Paola Delfín started painting in the street as something of an experiment. Besides teaching her that urban art is likely her true calling, that experiment has taken Delfín all over the world to create sprawling murals in Germany, China, Spain, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Brazil and back to her native Mexico — a country she’s described as a super-important “cradle of muralismo.” Although often addressing themes of femininity, Delfín is quick to point out that her work is not socially driven but a means to infuse spaces with new life. Currently finishing up a residency at S.M.A.R.T., Delfín is set to unveil “Effloresce,” a series of new work that “radiates with the metaphor of blossoming femininity anchored in the roots from which we came.” The first solo curatorial endeavor of Hillarey Jones, the exhibition comprises an exhibition of paintings as well as “a new mural for San Antonio.”
