Celeste De Luna is an artist/printmaker from the lower Rio Grande Valley of South Texas. Her work seeks to articulate and document personal and collective experiences in the material, spiritual, and supernatural world. Rooted in a Chicana feminist perspective, she seeks to tease out the intricacies of living in and along the borderlands in her art as well as envisioning a fantastical, futuristic frontera.
De Luna is a self-taught printmaker/educator whose work includes large-scale woodcut prints and installation. De Luna is a cofounder of the socially engaged art collective Las Imaginistas, an accomplished home cook, and cultural advocate. Her recipes appear in the book “Don’t Count the Tortillas” by Adan Medrano and she also appears in his film Truly Texas Mexican advocating for traditional food, street vendors, and cultural ways. Currently, she lives in San Antonio, works out of her home studio, Metztli Press, and teaches Mexican-American Studies for Northwest Vista College.
