Marily Mojica
Born Brooklyn, NY
Nationality American
Occupation Artist

Marily Mojica is an American visual artist of Puerto Rican parents[1] of Yoruba ancestry.[2] She currently resides and works in Washington, DC.

Artwork

Mojica's artwork usually addresses social issues such as interracial marriages and friendships, same-sex marriage, and "fitting in."[3] She has noted that she looks "like a black American. And yet, I don’t fit into the black American group, because I’m Hispanic. Because I look African-American, I don’t always fit into a Latin group. I’m also 6’1”, so I’m not your traditional Latina. All those things make me think about the differences in people.”[3] Her art has been exhibited widely and has been the subject of diverse critical attention.[2][3][4][5][6][7]
