UNTOLD LATINX NARRATIVES
Getting ready for a year long thesis
During my initial graduate school thesis inquiry at MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art), I thought about identity, heritage, and experiences. I looked inward, exploring the beautiful complexities found in my culture.
No Dicho is a space that showcases Latinx talent spanning across a variety of art and design mediums that highlights the beauty and diversity they bring to society. Coupled with compelling stories revolving around identity, this publication servers to tell untold narratives about Latinxs.

TWO LATINX DESIGNERS DESERVING OF A SPOTLIGHT
Colombian painter, illustrator, designer, and knitwear artist based in Washington, DC, Katty Huertas has a style that is unmistakably intentional, authentic and deep. Working in a variety of mediums, her work explores issues of female identity, double standards, and animal rights.
Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Bianca Gonzalez–Marra is challenging the way society depicts Latin women. She’s one half Sonic Yonix, a creative duo comprised of visual artists Diandre Fuentes and herself, making comics and doodles inspired by their experiences and observations as (proud) brown girls.
