Alejandra Abad was born in Venezuela and raised in Florida, where she majored in architecture before receiving a scholarship to transfer to The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she graduated with a BFA in Fine Art with a focus on New Media and Film. She also possesses a certificate in Digital Media and Computer-Assisted Multimedia Design, granted by the US Department of State, after completing the Art Fusion exchange program with The Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). As a visual artist, she regularly contemplates how art can shape our world and what social impact it can have. These questions drive her to create public works that bring people together by opening the audience to new perspectives. She has recently been involved in creating interactive and collaborative pieces as the Giant Coloring Book.
