Lina Maria Giraldo
Lina Maria Giraldo is a multi-media artist from Boston. She creates screen-based, computer-generated work using video and photography. She incorporates contemporary language, such as video games and advertisements, emphasizing the scale and repetition of these modes of communication. Lina’s work is concerned with the culture of consumption. Her work is often interactive, giving her audience control of the narrative decisions. She likes to think of her work as a visual poem with an factual purpose. She invites the spectator to stop their busy life and think about the consequences of compulsive consumption. Her work implores the viewer to become more conscious of their surroundings and actions.
In 2010, Lina received her Master’s degree in Interactive Telecommunications from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. She received her BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art in 2006, and previously attended Andes University and Guerrero Fine Arts Academy in Bogota, Colombia. Lina’s work has been displayed in galleries and public spaces throughout Boston, New York and Colombia.
