Carla Maldonado is a visual artist born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and currently living and working in Brooklyn, NY. She holds an MFA in Photography, Video, and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts. 

With photography, filmmaking and installations, Maldonado creates work that is inherently political, exploring her relationship to the struggles of progressive movements in her home country of Brazil, post Bolsonaro's election, and her experience as a latin immigrant in the current Trump era. To encourage the mind, Maldonado aims to reconcile beauty with the distorted reality she navigates, which in turn accumulates into her visual narrative.
