Karla Rosas (she/they/ella/e), known as KARLINCHE, is a visual artist and language justice worker based in New Orleans. Born in Mexico but raised in Southeastern Louisiana, Karla’s work challenges conventional depictions of migration by exploring (im)migrant experiences beyond linear narratives, documentation, and borders. Karla’s art practice encompasses painting, illustration, sculpture, and embroidery. Notable features include The L.A. Times’ “Latinx Files,” Antigravity Magazine’s tarot column, and inclusion in various collections, including the Hood Museum and UC San Diego’s Undocumented Student Center. Karla received the Define American Immigrant Artist Fellowship in 2019 and was an Artist-in-Residence at the Joan Mitchell Center in Fall/Winter 2022.
