Amanda Rose Kachadoorian is an artist who was born and raised in San Diego, California. Her dreamy botanical portraits reflect both the intermingling of cultures across diverse communities and the unique perspective that accompany the multicultural experience. Kachadoorian’s interest in the hybridization of cultures and botanicals is influenced by her own experience growing up near the border of San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico along with her own multi-ethnic background. Her current project titled, “Botanical Hybridity of San Diego’s Multicultural History” is a series of work representing diverse cultures, communities and history that have shaped specific regions of San Diego by using untouched landscape and surrealist botanicals as a surrogate for people and cultures. Her work belongs in the collections of institutions including the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture and private collectors.
