Born in Harlem NYC, Soraida Martinez is known for creating the art style of Verdadism. Since 1992, the artist has been speaking out against the prejudice that still pervades America society. For 25 years now, the artist has been creating paintings and writing social commentaries based on her personal life experiences with racism, sexism and stereotyping. The art of Verdadism confronts the societal issues that continue to disenfranchise women, Latinos, African-Americans, and others alienated by mainstream American society. She has been chosen by the U.S. Department of State as one of the 15 most prominent Hispanic Americans in the arts shaping the U.S. cultural scene.
