Gloria Santiago is a visual artist, intersectional feminist, and social activist from Philadelphia, PA. A product of immigrant parents in an urban melting pot, her main objective is to catalyze community development through beautification and cultural education.
Her work is experimental and incorporates an array of media and surfaces, ranging from digital to mural arts. She is primarily inspired by surrealism and street art, and her pieces draw upon social and political issues, as well as music and other elements of pop culture. She creates both original and commissioned pieces with a style that can only be described as eclectic.
Gloria is a former curator of HERspace Arts Festival and her work has been displayed in Philadelphia and Los Angeles. Most recently, she has partnered with North Philadelphia Peace Park on an ongoing mural project covering their campus.
Gloria was named Spring 2017's "Inspiration in our Community" by Motivos Magazine. She has participated in speaker series with academic institutions and nonprofit organizations, discussing her experiences using visual media as a pedagogical tool.
