Mariell Guzman: Proudly born and raised in Mexico among a tight-knit family of creative spirits, 26-year-old Guzman brings her art—created in brilliant color—to her new, beloved home in Dallas. The mural will be the artist’s inaugural in Deep Ellum — a milestone she describes as one of her biggest dreams. The mural also represents Mariell’s first time blending the influences she’s had growing up in two different cultures and manifests how their landscapes, communities and cultures have shaped her as an artist.
