Laura Alvarez studied her Fine Arts MA between Spain and UK, and she has been a graphic designer for more than 15 years. Before she left Spain she was running the Communication and PR department in a private school for several years.

She is a teaching artist and the Vice President of BxArts Factory, a newly created organization with a clear mission: to make art accessible to everyone in the Bronx. She has exhibited all over Europe and New York in collective and solo shows. She started curating shows in 2012. Laura has received several awards, grants, and residencies.
