About Ana Maria Velasco:
Ana Maria was born in Bogota, Colombia. Growing up, she moved between Nicaragua (her mother’s homeland) while it was undergoing the throes of dictatorship and revolution; Colombia while it was ravaged by narco-terrorism and Cambridge, MA where she was exposed at an early age to a diverse and intellectual community. These inspiring and turbulent environments heightened Ana Maria’s sense of awareness and social conscience and solidified her motivation to use art as a way to spark reflexion, conversation and change.
She received an MFA from The School of The Museum of Fine Arts Boston and Tufts University. She has participated in various exhibitions including solo shows, Interdependencia at The Colombian Consulate in NYC and Ficciones Retinianas at the Museum of Modern Art La Tertulia in Cali, Colombia. Her works are held in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art La Tertulia, Colombia, Bank of America, Boston and The Colombian Consulate in NYC.
