ERIKA SERVIN

Printmaking is my primary source of practice, not only I am interested due to its well known historic, political relationship with Mexican popular prints but also owing to its unique qualities of reproduction and graphic possibilities. Through my artwork I translate the concept of Mexican popular culture from symbols into narratives. There is a political aspect contained within printmaking and it has an important role in societal changes. 

I was born in Mexico City in 1972 and lives in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. In 2000 I obtained a Master of Arts degree in New York University, since then I have exhibited in the UK, Mexico, Spain, Australia, NY, Finland, France among others.

 

Currently I work in Newcastle University as Lecturer in Fine Art / Printmaking Demonstrator and continue exhibiting.

 

Since 2011, I have been a Trustee for Northern Print.

 

Since 2008, I have been  a Fulbright Scholar.
