Born and raised in Miami, Stephanie Menjivar is someone who lives for the love of art. With early influences from her graphic designer father; Stephanie has been exposed to the arts since she was a child. With an expertise in digital art, she has won competitions such as the Coca-Art of Harmony Contest (2006) and the Skills USA Poster Design Competition (2008). In addition she was a Junior Docent for the Museum of Contemporary Art and was the design editor of the museum’s teen magazine, The Mocazine in 2009. Her work was also featured in the University of Tampa’s Newspaper-The Minaret. As of now Stephanie is pursuing a Bachelors of Science in Biology at Florida International University and intends to combine her love for art and admiration for science through her artwork.
When one looks at Stephanie’s pieces closely, one may notice the theme of different body parts being portrayed in different styles. The significance behind this peculiarity is that the young artist combines aspects of human anatomy with different figures to portray her ideas about love, life, and who she is. Although her final pieces are digital works, most of the time many of the figures expressed are sculpted or sketched in order to convey her artistic ideas.
One of Stephanie’s most important inspirations has been the work of Andy Warhol because of his style, his pop art movement, and controversial attitude. As Warhol once said “art is what you can get away with” and this phrase is one of the main reasons why Stephanie has a passion for art.
