I was invited to commemorate the origin story of El Mandado Supermarket at their new location in Raleigh, North Carolina. El Mandado began in 1989, when founders Marco and Ana Roldan began knocking on doors in a Cary trailer park, selling tortillas to Latino residents out of the back of a Ford van. Today, El Mandado is not only the foremost Latin American grocery in the Triangle; it’s also a community gathering point, where friends can meet to eat lunch, initiate money transfers, get legal services, buy clothes, cell phones, and party supplies, and more.

Meet the Creator
Taylor White is an American figurative artist whose work engages with the fundamental elements of being. Combining refined techniques of classical training with bright, unexpected color choices born from the residue of street art and pop culture, White’s work is a bold and kinetic pursuit of the delicate harmonies that exist in that sweet spot between order and chaos.

White was raised in Raleigh, NC and educated at the Savannah College of Art and Design, completing her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration in 2007. Upon graduating, she began contributing her efforts to acclaimed Oslo-based advertising agency TRY/Apt, as the first and only full-time illustrator hired in a Norwegian agency at the time.

Three years later her choice to pursue painting brought her to Australia, where she found a new kind of success traversing the textures of urban environments, furnishing the streets and galleries of Melbourne with her uniquely haunting, expressive portraits of forlorn youth.

She has exhibited internationally from Melbourne to Berlin, LA, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago and Detroit. She has contributed to events for Just Another Agency, Analogue/Digital, Juddy Roller, Outer Space Project, Richmond Mural Project, Murals in the Market, Branded Arts, and SCOPE Miami Beach. She most recently worked with Google Fiber to create one of the largest public-facing Augmented Reality murals in the world.

She is currently based in Raleigh, NC.
