Loteria by Melanie Bañuelos Rivas
East High School Student
Wood, Acrylic Paint, and Wire
"My work explores many materials from painting, wire and wood. I was influenced by the traditional Mexican game of “loteria” similar to bingo, every card has a unique and detailed images instead of numbers. Ever since I was young I've been fascinated with having my own card and I was able to create my version, something that represents me, from the colors, headpiece, and figures."
