Maia Cruz Palileo is a multi-disciplinary artist. Migration and the permeable concept of home are constant themes in her paintings, drawings, sculptures, animations, and installations. Influenced by oral history of her family’s arrival in America from the Philippines and growing up in the Midwest, Maia infuses these narratives with memory and imagination. Among her group exhibitions are those at ArtGate Gallery, Bronx River Art Center, CUE Art Foundation, ISCP, and Wave Hill. Her work has been featured in Contemporary Art Philippines. She is a recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation MFA Grant and the Astraea Visual Arts Fund Award. Maia received a MFA in sculpture from Brooklyn College, City University of New York, and BA in Studio Art at Mount Holyoke College. She lives and works in Brooklyn.
