Marthalicia Matarrita graduated from LaGuardia High School of Music & Arts and was a student at SUNY, New Paltz. Her work delicately balances expressions of beauty and decay, savagery and innocence. In 2006, Matarrita formed M-Squared Art Productions with her two brothers. A collective grounded in the four elements of hip-hop, M-Squared integrates art and music into the party landscape of New York City with Marthalicia’s specialty in live painting.
