Artist Bio:

I am an artist, cultural promoter, and educator. I was formally trained as a painter, studying in Florence, Italy and received my B.A. from California State University Fresno. My work and projects have been shown in the United States, Mexico, Belgium and Greece at MoMA-P.S.1, Exit Art, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, El Museo del Barrio, Queens Museum of Art, Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts in San Francisco, Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americana (MACLA), Casita Maria and The Taller Boricua, among others. Recipient of the BRIO award from the Bronx Council on the Arts in 2007, I began an artist-run project in my bedroom called the Bronx Blue Bedroom Project (BBBP) in 2008. I currently oversee AAA3A (Alexander Avenue Apartment 3A), an artist run project space which offers gregarious living room occurrences, face to face exchanges, food, dialogue, workshops, and art in my living room.
