Ma. Victoria Bianco
"Throughout her artistic career Victoria has worked mainly oil and mixed media techniques. The concept of identity is the focus of her production: the individual and society, otherness, gender and migration.
In this particular series, Bianco explores contemporary Panamanian culture through the portrayal of children and young adults in the coast of Panama, observing the clothing, attitude, manners and traditions, while integrating traditional Kuna patterns. In her travels, she has found a vibrant people with strong social and cultural customs, and a very rich set of artistic expressions born in the years of slavery and still hold an important space in their daily lives."
