Julia Banderas is a contemporary artist working and living in Chicago. Her signature artwork has evolved into a pattern-based “LePanther” series that illustrates a leopard and panther merged together as a representation of strength and evolution. This new series was inspired by Banderas' fascination with fashion design and old Hollywood patterns. As a co-owner of a screen printing studio, she experiments with different media in her fine art practice and creates original works in a custom mix of paints and silkscreens. Banderas was selected by a panel of judges for Line Dot's inaugural Holiday Show.
