Born in Havana, Cuba 1951


Artist Maria Lino works in a variety of media, describes her two most recent series, Working Hands & Water. “I experiment with the interdisciplinary fusion of the visual arts and the documentary mode by combining drawing, video, digital media and animation with material that is traditionally considered documentary: interviews, still images, recorded sound and archival and appropriated footage.” She has shown her work in multiple galleries in the United States, Latin America and Europe. Her work was part of the traveling exhibition Cuba/USA: First Generation, and has been included in museum exhibitions such as Ancient Roots/New Visions, Contemporaries: Juxtaposing Perceptions, at the Museum of Contemporary Hispanic Art in New York, Ten Contemporary Hispanic Artists, at the Brooklyn Museum, and Resurgimiento, at the Museo del Barrio in New York, among others. She is the winner of a Women in the Visual Arts scholarship and received a Fulbright Award to work in Peru in 2011. Lino has a Bachelor’s degree from New York University and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Florida International University. Cintas for Art (1975-1976) & (1976-1977).
