Leticia Darlina Tanguma
“To me, art is in a person’s glance, laughter, grito, or cry. Art is the interaction between this candor and the universe. My challenge is to reflect truth as I create, whether within beauty or darkness or whether in present tensions or in the echoes of generations. I am guided by love.”
Leticia paints social justice murals, abstract, and representational art. Her most recent murals are for Cross Purpose and the Troy Chavez Memorial Peace Garden
