Laura Maschietto

San Francisco, CA - United States


Laura Maschietto is a based San Francisco artist, born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1984.
She studied Fine Arts at Universidad Nacional de las Artes in Buenos Aires, as well as teaching French as a foreign language.
Her work is centered in collage portraits and multi-media work, pondering the enigma of change and transformation, seen through female eyes. She communicates through visual messages by isolating and decontextualizing images from their original intent.
Since 2013 she has been presenting The Drama Queens, a series of women collage portraits that exposes and confronts contemporary concepts such as self-awareness, image fragmentation, acceptance and inclusion, all originated from social behaviors. Laura believes that the expression of the eyes is the vehicle of transit to another person's emotions, in where we can find our true self.
Laura has lived and worked in Buenos Aires, Paris, and San Francisco. She participated in many art exhibitions at the Alliance fran├žaise of Buenos Aires, The Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco and multiple art walks around the city, involving art, community and languages. She has also performed and been featured at the Yerba Buena Night Festival in San Francisco in 2013 and 2014, as well as at The Autumn Lights Festival in Oakland, in 2017.
