Indie 184 is truly a self-made artist. Born Soraya Marquez, a native New Yorker of Dominican descent, she quit business school to teach herself how to paint, sew and do graphic design. Her artwork is a raucous rapture of color and textures influenced by her love of abstract expressionism and pop art. It features her original graffiti, lush imagery and designs, and is infused with personal messages.
Indie 184 has been active in graffiti culture for over two decades. Her art has been exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide, including El Museo del Barrio in New York City and Völklingen Ironworks Museum, in Saarbrücken Germany, Museo de Bellas Artes De Murcia in Spain as well as numerous solo and group gallery exhibitions. Her graffiti and mixed media murals can be found in the streets from the South Bronx to Paris. Her most recent collaborations have been with Rimmel London as Chief Artistic Officer, Apple Beats1 Radio, Lionsgate Films, MTV Networks and a capsule clothing collection with iBlues.
