Love for Fordham

Next Image Title

Artist Name

I created this mural for the new Target Store at Fordham Road, Bronx, NY, Cities are made by people, and this piece reflects the diversity of the Bronx Community. Building the cityscape with their faces, emerging from the ground up, holding up the landmarks and places they live at. Between the buildings you can see the green spaces peeking!

illustration of “Nature Quilt” is a patchwork of bright colored patterns that includes leaves, flowers, stars, and eyes representing the diversity of this community. It is designed to bring joy and happiness to the people and the events that take place here. It contrasts the dark asphalt around it, and at the same time, it mirrors Nature, looking at the park just across the street.

Profile

Laura Alvarez was born in Valencia, Spain and studied an MA in Fine Arts in Spain and England. In NYC, she juggles between her city job, her artist career, and her commitment to her Bronx community. She has been a teaching artist with more organizations and city agencies she can remember, but what she does recall, is all the lives she has touched through the years thanks to the arts, and she knows there will be more. Laura is interested in how art interacts with people and what better place than the streets? She has taken her artwork out the studio working in walls and step-streets in different countries and NYC neighborhoods, to bring her colorful designs and joy to the community while planning what's the next wall she's going to tackle. 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 or immigration. She has exhibited all over Europe and New York in collective and solo shows. In most of her shows she tries to program free workshops to pass along her love for art and her mantra: "everyone is an artist".
