About Me-2-Mayda Madrid.png

Hi there, my name is Mayda Madrid. I love creating art with beautiful layers of black and pops of color. I love painting from the heart and moments that speak to me, which often leads to a very eclectic gallery.

 

The characters I paint and illustrate are inspired by the strong women in my life, early classic Mexican actresses and some that live in my creative imagination. They are edgy, peculiar and dress beautifully in layers of black and a pops of color. 

 

Early classic Mexican actresses such as Dolores Del Rio, Lupe Velez and Maria Felix heavily influenced my characters and paintings. As a Latina artist, born in Mexico and raised in the USA, I have little understanding of my very own culture. Therefore, I strive to educate and immerse myself in the culture and this is often reflected in my paintings.  

In my paintings and illustrations, I use both traditional and digital methods to illustrate. Ink, watercolor, and gouache are most commonly used and finalize touches in digital. Acrylics are also used on occasion. 
 

As a freelance artist, I also collaborate with a wide range of quality businesses, brands and manufacturers who utilize my illustrations for commercial projects and art licensing.
