Calaveras and Death: Live mural painting @ SF De Young Museum 2

Ana Aranda was born and raised in Mexico City, where she studied design. From there, she moved to France, where she completed her undergraduate studies in illustration. She now lives in San Francisco, where she obtained her MFA in Illustration through a grant from the Mexican Fund for Culture and Arts.

Aranda’s work has been featured in galleries and museums in the United States, France, Mexico, and Italy. In San Francisco, she has painted murals in the Mission District, for the Consulate General of Mexico, and for the de Young. Her illustrations can be found in picture books published in France and Italy. Some of her forthcoming titles include “The Chupacabra Ate the Candelabra” (Penguin Books) and “¡Celebración!” (Lee and Low Books).

Her biggest inspirations are her childhood memories, the vibrant colors of Mexico, and music. Her work focuses on transforming the every day into fantastical situations, and often include images from nature and whimsical creatures.
