Josefina Quesada
Mural located at East Los Angeles College
International artist, Josefina Quesada has worked in Mexico and the United States where her work is avidly sought after. It is collected by art lovers in Israel, the Philippines, Moscow, South America and Europe.

She has several murals in Mexico and the United States and in 1971 was commissioned by David Alfaro Siquieros to restore his 1932 mural "America Tropical" that is located on the exterior wall of the Italian Hall in Olvera Street. The ill fated project was funded by KCET which nonetheless went on to film the documentary "America Tropical" by Jesus S. Treviño.

Presently Ms. Quesada lives and continues to work in L.A.
