Marissa De La Mora
Marissa De La Mora was born in Chicago, Illinois. She has been largely influenced by her Mexican heritage. Art and the intense desire to create have been the most important and prominent motivation throughout her life. Growing up in Mexico and later living in the city she developed a taste for urban street art such as wheat pasted posters and flyers, stickers, stencils, murals and spray painted graffiti. Meeting new friends and learning new techniques, the “underground” and “outsider” art became part of her life and created a fusion which is her art today.
