Andréa Searle is a queer Afro-latinx/Ojibwe artist working and residing on unceded W̱ SÁNEĆ
territory. They are a practicing tattoo artist in Victoria, and they currently strive to provide a safe space
for the LGBTQ+ and POC communities to adorn their bodies in this city. Andréa brings a fresh new
outlook to tattooing, drawing inspiration from Michoacana folk art, Catholic iconography and the Dada
art movement. Outside of tattooing Andréa creates mixed media pieces that explore latency between the
body and soul, Dominican Santeria, and the deification of POC bodies to bring light to a world that
continues to depict them in darkness.
