Ingrid de Aguiar Sanchez creates prints, drawings and installations that examine cultural and linguistic hybridism as a method of adaption and survival. In her ongoing project Fragmentos, she intervenes walls with graphic and organic imagery arranged in mosaic-like collages. Reminiscent of a building façade in her native Brazil, the work references different forms of visual expression that transpire in public space such as contemporary graffiti and colonial-era baroque design. Ingrid received her BFA from The Maryland Institute College of Art in 2006 and her MFA from Tufts University in 2011. She received The Elizabeth A. Sackler Museum Grant to pursue a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate at the Studio Art Centers International in Florence, Italy. Ingrid currently is a Community Arts Instructor at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston.
