Brown (Marrón) (TV Series)

 The search for identity when everything tells you you’re in the wrong place.

Rocío Quillahuaman was born in Lima, Peru, and at the age of eleven, she arrived in Barcelona with her family. She believed she would become a doctor, but eventually decided it was more important to tell stories. On her Instagram account, hundreds of thousands of people watch her signature videos daily, which she started making to relieve stress, but which have turned her into a role model for Gen Z in Spain. Her drawing’s aggressive strokes, her loud, urban, and angry characters, and her dark and neurotic humor, made her appear on the Forbes list for the 100 most creative Spaniards.

In her first written work, she recounts her memoirs with a great sense of humor, heart, and a bit of anger. She shares her childhood memories in the San Juan de Miraflores district of Lima and her journey to Spain at the age of 10, during which, at the airport, a police officer dismembered her huge Winnie The Pooh toy in search of cocaine packages.

By embracing the concept of “brown pride” that she read about in an article by Gabriela Wiener in The New York Times, the author asserts her Latin roots while reflecting on the racism she faced upon arriving in Spain, not only from external sources but also from within. She realized that she had internalized racism against herself to the point of wanting to scrape off the dark patches on her elbows or knees.

In her exploration of the most significant moments of her childhood and adolescence, the illustrator embarks on a humorous journey towards self-discovery.
