“Artist, do not let your work be a mirror that simply reflects society, art must engage with the world it’s living in. Let your art be the hammer that shapes our world.”
— Paola Mendoza

“We, artists, inspire people to love when it is easier to hate.”

Art, according to Paola Mendoza, creates culture and illuminates us in dark times.
