Born from a Cuban mother, in Puerto Rico. Her unique vision issues from the inherent complexities of her identity as well as the energies of the youth cultures that have informed her creative practice. Her work draws inspiration from abstraction; deconstructing post-colonial urban landscapes intertwine with nature, developing her own interpretation of nostalgia. Maldonado was awarded the Manhattan Community Arts Fund by the LMCC. Her first solo museum exhibition took place at the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Puerto Rico, in 2012; and has exhibited in several major institutions including the CAAM, Mint Museum, Museum of Art and Design, Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft, The Ringling Museum; and Museo del Barrio. Public projects include 10th Havana Biennial, Real Arts Ways, Time Square Alliance, and The Bronx Museum of the Arts. Maldonado lives and works in New York
