When she began rapping at age 16, Mare Advertencia Lirika was the first female MC in Oaxaca, Mexico. She is Zapotec and draws on her experiences and cultural heritage as a native woman in her art and advocacy. Her lyrics engage complex threads of community, identity, and gender to comment on historic and institutionalized sexism and social injustice. 

This painting was a temporary installation for Fine Lines Festival presented by Words Beats & Life at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts.
