Stephanie Silva Santana is a queer multidisciplinary artist from Mayaguez, Puerto Rico living in Seattle, Washington. She has been taking photographs since very young, focusing on social issues, politics, and growing conflicts back home. Recently, photography has been an inspiration to create linocuts, also dealing with Puerto Rican topics to raise awareness while using two artistic mediums that are easy and accessible to reproduce.
She has a Bachelors in Comparative Literature and a minor in Art History from the University of Puerto Rico. She has been part of two individual expositions in Puerto Rico, curated a collective exposition in New York and has been part of various collective expositions in Puerto Rico, Seattle, and New York.
