Veronica Melendez is a visual artist based out of Washington D.C. From illustrations of iconic household products to photographs documenting the diaspora of Central Americans within the D.C. metro area, her work is greatly influenced by her Latinx upbringing. Having been raised in D.C within one of the largest Central American communities in the United States her work gives a platform to a voice that is often marginalized and serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of culture and representation in art. Veronica is also a founder of La Horchata Zine - a seasonal arts publication highlighting creatives with Central American ancestry.
