Diary of a Nuyorican, an international online solo exhibition by Amanda Dorval opens on November 27 and will continue through December 27, 2021.

Amanda is a Latina artist, photographer, designer, and seven-year Air Force Veteran. Todos somos Taínos is a series that explores modern-day Puerto Rican and Dominican identity, especially as it relates to being an American, while examining the complex history of European colonialism in these two Caribbean countries. The series is composed of digital photographs mixed with digital painting and photocollage. After portrait photography, she hand draw a digital painting that overlays the subject. These digital paintings include motifs that come from Taíno, European Catholic, Middle Easter, and modern-day Caribbean visual cultures, which is reflective of the mestizaje (a mixing of race, ethnicity, and culture) that resulted from European colonialism.
