VANESA ALVAREZ DIAZ
My work explores the power of the community, using color, illustrations, symbols, patterns, and words with a powerful message to reach the viewer’s heart in a direct way. Always transmitting values such as equality, ecology, and social justice.
I love to create new, inspiring spaces that can improve people’s lives, and truly believe that public art can change our way of thinking and relating, making us more empathetic beings.
To give power to the message I use my graphic style, full of color, geometries, and optimism. Changing a gray space for color space. Changing minds and feelings for a better world.
I am a muralist and visual artist from Spain based in Brooklyn. I have been selected in international competitions such as PintaMalasaña (Madrid Street Art Project), The Flag Project in Rockefeller Center, and Arts in Medicine Program by NYC Health+Hospitals. I have created murals with social and feminist themes in Spain, Mexico, and New York City. I have been an Artist in Residence through Project Art USA; and Teaching Artist for LEAP NYC’s Public Art Program. My latest creations have been with Artbridge/ Bridging The Divide Project, Thrive Collective, The six foot platform (Dumbo), Brooklyn Arts Council (SuCasa) and USQ Partnership (Union Square street mural 2023). Now I am developing my studio practice in Kunstraum
