Born in 1995 in Cali, Columbia, Mayra Mateus, known professionally as Mateus Art, is a pop artist based in Miami. In 2017, she resonated with the street-and spray paint- style art of the vibrant Wynwood neighborhood of Miami.

She was inspired to create a brand around a piggy bank character and has created a portfolio of various mediums incorporating this symbol. The message she portrays with piggy bank is “saving dreams“, where her intention is to remind people that pursuing dreams is more important than focusing on money.
