Sabrina Mendoza Malavé (b. 1996, Lechería, Anzoategui, Venezuela) creates mixed media art that foments social consciousness. Mendoza dedicates her practice to building awareness around Venezuela's socio-political turmoil, her work functions as a critique of international and national power structures and their impacts on Venezuelans. The artworks feature messages in various forms – her poetry intertwined with references to political propaganda, news, and protest signs advocate for unity and reflect on class inequality, political polarization, and misinformation. Mendoza's craft results in expressions that weave in portraits of Venezuelan citizens, landscapes, infrastructures, and patriotic symbolism for cultural celebration and to commemorate the country’s perseverance through adverse circumstances.
