Artist Bio

Lizzy Alejandro is a visual artist, born and raised in The Bronx. She attended Lehman College, earning her BA in Studio Art with a concentration in photography. Alejandro fell in love with photography at the age of 16 when she enrolled for photography classes at a program called The Point, located in the South Bronx. Since then, she has not put down her camera. In 2010, Alejandro fell in love yet again; inspired by the work of Banksy and M.I.A, she started creating stencils from her photographs. She often combines the two mediums in her work.

Alejandro has exhibited at the Lehman College Art Gallery, BronxArtSpace, Andrew Freedman Home, the Galleries at Krasdale Foods and in the Bronx Latin American Art Biennial. She still resides in The Bronx.
