Mar Pascual is a Filipinx, non-binary, queer, traumatized, fat, femme inter-disciplinary artist living in Southern California. Their work explores themes that center decolonization, gender non-conformity and fluidity, intimacy, mental illness, and trauma. They received their BA in Art (Painting) from California State University, Northridge, where they helped start a zine collective with some fellow students. Since making their first zine in 2014, their work has appeared throughout CA, including Los Angeles and San Francisco zine fests, the Long Beach Queer Film Festival, and several QTPOC community events. Though they are experienced in several mediums, collage, illustration, and zine-making are their current practices.
