About

Lina Maria Giraldo is currently finishing her MPS in Interactive Communications Program (ITP) at New York University, where she is the recipient of both the Tisch School Scholarship and the Paulette Godard. She initiated her career at the Fine Arts program at the Universidad de los Andes in Bogota, Colombia. She later moved to Boston, where she studied English, while actively working as an artist in the local scene. She was awarded the Tsongas Scholarship at Mass College of Art, where she majored in Studio of interrelated Media (SIM) with Departmental Honors and Academic Distinction. She was then selected as a finalist for the Stephen D. Paine Scholarship Fund and received an honorable mention. She was a featured artist of the President’s Report of Massachusetts College of Art.

During the last nine years, she has been highlighted in different news sources from the New England area like The Boston Globe, The Boston Phoenix, Big Red and Shiny and the South End News as well as local TV shows. Her work has been displayed in galleries and shows as well as public spaces throughout the Boston area and Colombia. She completed an artist residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute, which inspired her to carry out this project, which was later granted by the Hispanic Scholarship Foundation.

Challenged every day with language, social differences and endless consumerism, she creates installations that merge with the spectator and the space. As a multimedia artist she uses live video, web, digital photo, animation, performance and sound in order to access the constant flow of new technology.
