Silvia La Rote is an independent mixed media artist, writer, and organizer currently residing in Los Angeles, CA. Her work has appeared in the Feminist Wire, La Galeria, Five2One: Art & Literary Magazine, Not Your Mothers' Breast Milk, Juxtapoz, among others.
Silvia grew up in New York City, and attributes Occupy Wall Street as a turning point in her political and artistic activation. Her work seeks to merge/mix worlds like that of the physical and the digital, and consists of hand drawn & multimedia pieces. She aims to distort the boundaries dividing personal & political, and the poetical & polemical. Eco-feminism, re-wilding, and the development of sexuality removed from imposed culture are also driving factors to her inspiration.
