Mural by Angelina Villalobos, 179. 
Seattleites may recognize Villalobos' colorful murals, located throughout the city (including the elephant mural next door to Seattle Opera's offices in South Lake Union!).

"I’m a Seattle-born art activist who's passionate about connecting art with action," Villalobos says. "My work strives to engage viewers to partake in their environment through observation and participation. I believe community engagement is vital to successful art-planning, and that art should be accessible to all."

Villalobos, who goes by the pseudonym 179, grew up within Americanized Mexican Catholic culture. Today, she often mixes the iconography of Catholicism with pop culture to folklore. This union, influenced by being raised in the Pacific Northwest in the the 90’s, is an intimate exemplification of her personal pursuit of understanding the world around her. Angelina creates a fairy-tale land filtered through the eyes of an anime and comic book lover.
