Madara Tropa is a visual artist living in Latvia, Mexico, and the United States. In her paintings, installations, and videos, Tropa constructs dream-like spaces where the sense of human vacancy is uncertain and nebulous. She studied at the National University of Latvia and the National School of Art in Mexico City. Recent exhibitions have been at The Museum of Mexico City, The Cultural Institute of Aguascalientes, The Modern Art Museum of Toluca, and The Daugavpils Regional Museum of Art in Latvia. She was awarded the 2019 Elizabeth Sloan Tyler Memorial Award for Fine Art.
