Marylin Rondon


Marilyn is a self-made Venezuelan queen with a tatted crown to match, a master of all things creative and of keeping it all the way 100. Since beginning her artistic journey at a design high school in Miami, Rondon has followed her heart and affinity for adventure and authenticity into a layered career involving 35mm photography, zine production, paint, installations, modeling, and writing. The content of Marilyn’s work is as impressive and varied as her mediums, spanning intentions from self expression to broader social commentaries. In her zine and installation work, Marilyn repurposes documentation of her own lived experiences in the name of personal growth, while simultaneously provoking conversations around internet culture, sexual commodification, abusive relationships, and mental illness.
