Artwork on display by Lauren Adorno-Weatherford & Pablo Soto Campoamor at the Throckmorton Theater for March and April 2023.
Hello, My name is Lauren Catalina Adorno-Weatherford. I am an Afro Latina, a proud Puerto Rican rooted in the legacy of the African Diaspora.
I am a working Bay Area artist and practitioner in the healing arts. I started painting in 2013 and have not stopped. I am a trained Artist Teacher in the Musea Intentional Creativity method founded by Shiloh Sophia McCloud, and I host artist circles for black and brown women in my community.
I consider my work Medicine for the Soul. Each painting is an organic expression, evolution, and revolution of self discovery. My paintings are unapologetically colorful and bold, using symbology, mysticism and prayer to honor the divine feminine. I believe art made reverent is healing, and connects us to deeper parts of ourselves that are often hidden. Painting provides a way to interpret the internal world of feelings and emotions, externally. The canvas becomes a portal into the quantum realm for accessing deeper ways of knowing.
Through the abstract layers, symbols and faces are born and come alive. Each painting carries a unique energy and story often universal, imbued by my personal experiences of the world. Travel, creativity, shamanism and the arts are my lifeline and sacred work.
My passion and purpose as a Sacred Artist, are to teach, listen, share story, live fully in the moment, and embrace being human with all its facets, shades and colors. My deepest desire is to make my ancestors smile with pride, and to leave strong feminine images as my legacy. If you are interested in my work. Please send an email to: email@example.com or call (415) 793-0641 for further information.
I am always happy to meet new people and talk about art and creativity!
Pablo Soto Campoamor
I am the son of Cuban immigrants, the first of my family to be born in the US. Both of my parents are from Havana, but the family roots spread across the island east to Bayamo, south to Batabanó, and west to Artemisa. Miami is my hometown, and Havana my second home.
Growing up at the dawn of Hip Hop, and straddling two worlds, negotiating competing identities, I lived between “La Saguecera” (South West Miami), Hialeah, and South Miami. Spending long periods of time with my family, and people in Cuba had a profound effect on my cultural identity.
Art has always been a central part of my life. I come from an artistic family. Spirituality, storytelling, food, ritual, and music were woven through the fabric of my family. Sacred, and surreal memories are the landscape of my visual vocabulary. The themes, and symbols that emerge from this landscape, continually animate and inspire my art. My first formal teacher was my stepmother, Maria Lino.
At eight I had my first job as her apprentice, painting life-size replicas of iconic western artwork for houses on the real estate market. For ten years I painted graffiti on public and private walls as a founding member of DAM727 crew (one of the oldest graffiti crews in Miami). Later I shifted from the spray-can to the pencil and brush.
Life in the Bay Area has also influenced my artwork, and presently informs the style of my expression. African, African-Diasporic, and Native American motifs emerge throughout my body of works, the foundations, as well as the juxtaposition of ancient symbols, with modern codes, and cyphers. I’ve lived and worked in Oakland for 26 years. Painting, playing, and teaching Afro-Cuban music, cultivating friendships, and raising my family is what I spend most of my time doing.
