Gloria Zapata lives in the South Bronx and grew up in the Mill Brook Housing. Living in the Bronx has inspired Gloria to use her artwork to share with the Youth and the community. Gloria's creative process is in photography of people, artists, models, dancers, murals and painting / spray painting canvas. Her goal is to create future ideas and other gallery exhibits. As a Blacktina woman, she would like to inspire others in the Bronx and LGBTQ community, through creativity and stories she shares with art.
