Misla is a native New Yorker and mixed media artist specifically interested in the Nuyorican experience. Misla’s work takes a personalized and collective account of the Latinx home and NYC apartments. Her paintings layer collage and found materials to explore the culturally dualistic environments in which she was raised. Misla has a BFA, with the support of the first Kossok Fellowship Award, from Hunter College, and an MFA from Queens College. With shows recognized by Remezcla and the Queens Tribune, her installation Apt.9D was also featured in NY Latin Culture Magazine. Select pieces have been exhibited by Plaxall Gallery, Aquarius Studios, with The Latinx Project, and as a Heckscher Museum Emerging Artist. Represented by Praxis Gallery, her second solo show What a Part of the Apartment Meant opens in September 2022.
