Throughout her stay in Nicaragua where her family is from, MJ Lindo learned to paint multiracial women sensually while maintaining vulnerability in her subjects. Currently a bay area artist MJ has lived around the world exposing her to many different cultures outside of her own. As a little girl living in Toronto, Canada, MJ would ride the subway everyday in hopes of seeing the huge graffiti pieces covering tremendous street walls inspiring her to become an artist. The decay and self wounding portrayed in MJ’s work can be seen as the vulnerability of the human race. While MJ has painted on many different mediums, she prefers and craves the firmness and stability she gets from painting on wood canvases. She continues to paint to document life lessons and journeys and will improve as she gains insight and wisdom.
