ALEXANDRA VELASCO is an artist, performer and filmmaker born in Mexico City and living in Los Angeles. What interests her is the different ways humans interact with one another and with themselves, and the myriad of ways humans communicate their most basic needs and desires. She is fascinated by the human form, by human gestures and by human abilities to love deeply one moment and completely destroy themselves and their surroundings the next. Her work emerges from her constant search of another more fantastical dream/nightmare reality.
Alexandra graduated from Parsons the New School for Design with a degree in video and performance art. In addition to being a frequent contributing writer for MilkMade, she has exhibited work in places like el Museo Universitario del Chopo and Casa Maauad in Mexico City, MILK Gallery, Signal Gallery, and Microscope Gallery in New York, in Birdhouse Gallery in Austin, Texas and the Fundicao of Oeiras in Lisbon, Portugal. She has been featured in Purple Magazine, Bullett Magazine and the artist interview website We Are Visual Animals.
