Meet the Artist - Maite Benito Agahnia

La Jolla, California, USA

Originally from Mexico


Originally from Mexico City, Maite has had to shift gears into different languages and cultures throughout her life. She divides her artistic expression equally fluently, moving between ways of seeing the world around her, as well as between different mediums: print-making, drawing, watercolor, painting, photography, and encaustic. Her focus has been creating hybrid combinations of these.


Maite’s background in graphic design and photography is evident in her paintings. Using the constraints of graphic design and photography in contrast with the freedom of abstraction, keeps her work balanced and in harmony. This juxtaposition pushes her to explore the relationship between the two, using them to complement each other in her work.


Maite’s work is rich in layers of color and texture. Her constant exploration with new ideas and materials keeps her work fresh and exciting.

'Vague Memories'
by Maite Benito Agahnia

Maite Benito Agahnia Art

Mixed media on wood panel

30cm x 30cm (12" x 12")


This piece represents memories that occasionally surface, perhaps in the form of deja-vu. The boldness of the black accentuate the dance between the rest of the forms and marks while being embraced by a lighter background. “Have you been here before? I vaguely remember.”
