Monica

Monica Romaina Brito, known by her Shipibo name as Sanken Mea, meaning 'beautiful design', is a member of the indigenous Shipibo Konibo community in the Paoyhan region of Ucayali. From childhood, her grandmother treated her with medicinal plants and taught her fabric design and embroidery. This has led Monica to become proficient in creating Shipibo designs with ease. These skills, deeply ingrained in her memory, allow her to exhibit creativity in fabric design. The images on her fabrics embody the energy of nature and depict visions of ayahuasca, expressed through various colors and shapes.

Recently her focus has shifted towards celebrating plant medicines/teachers and allowing these visions and teachings to flow through onto her canvases. She aims to tell the stories of those around her as well as her own, and believes painting and drawing are powerful tools to move energy, to integrate new insights and to heal both the self and others. 

Alfredo Zagaceta is from Pucallpa, the Ucayali region of the Peruvian Amazon Jungle. Apprenticing under Pablo Amaringo, he lived and worked with him in exchange for his school’s tuition at the Amazon School of Painting.
