Barbara Felix is an Afro-Latinx contemporary figurative artist. Most known for her self-portrait dance series, Bailando con Mi Misma, where Felix explores relationships, gender, cross cultural identity, body language and sensuality. Her newest work, The Color of Women, expands to celebrate diverse female connections in mixed media collage portraiture.
She received a BFA in Graphic Communication at Texas State University where her TSU coursework fired her love of the human figure and inspired her long pursuit to work as an artist. Felix has participated in numerous exhibitions in San Antonio and throughout Texas. Her recent video work has been screened in festivals and exhibitions across the country.
Felix’s monotype self-portrait work is in private collections. Her art practice is evolving to combine traditional media, mixed media and multi-media genres with her love for the figure.
