Laura Alvarez was born in Valencia, Spain and received an MA in Fine Arts in Spain and England. She arrived in The Bronx in 2009 where she juggles between her city job, her artist career, and her commitment to her Bronx community.

She has been a teaching artist with almost every organization and city agency touching many lives through the years thanks to the arts.

Laura is interested in how art interacts with people. She has taken her artwork out of the studio working on walls and step-streets in different countries and NYC neighborhoods, to bring her colorful designs and joy to the community.

She has received several awards and grants that she has used to continue promoting the arts among the Bronx youth and to create work that starts a conversation, touching issues like ecology, womanhood, racism, tradition, inequality and immigration.

Laura is the Co-Founder and Vice-President of the non-profit BxArts Factory, an organization committed to unlocking the inner artist in the Bronx community. She is also a board member for Artbridge, a non-profit that empowers emerging artists to transform urban spaces.

Laura has exhibited all over Europe and New York in collective and solo shows.
