Talita Suassuna is an visual artist originally from São Paulo, Brazil and currently living in San Francisco Bay Area, California. She graduated from California College of the Arts with a BFA in Painting and Drawing.

My work deals with the relationships between faith and cultural identity. I use symbols from such diverse realms as Afro-Brazilian culture and pseudoscience and join

them in the space of my work. 

Art fulfills a critical role and provides me a powerful connection to my cultural identity and transformation.
