Alice Mizrachi is a Queens based artist, curator, educator and community organizer. With a focus on the figure abstracted through color, line and pattern, Mizrachi’s work draws from an inner reserve of spontaneous raw emotion. As a master of materials, grounded in painting and printmaking, her respect for the mediums she works with is as important as the charged imagery she creates. She has exhibited work in galleries and museums worldwide including Powerhouse Gallery, Colette, Fifty 24LA, Crewest, Intermedia Arts, Museum of Contemporary Art in DC, and The National Women’s Museum in DC and most recently in solo shows in Paris and Tel Aviv. With strong ties to the urban art world, Mizrachi’s early work focused on the vibrant tranquility of city life and earned her profiles in niche publications Giant Magazine, Juxtapoz and Square Rootz. In addition to work on 2D surfaces, she has painted murals worldwide and begun to delve into sculptural objects made from found materials. With over 12 years of experience as an Arts Educator, Mizrachi has merged all of her interests as co-founder of the YOUNITY Arts Collective since 2006. The all-female urban art collective produces a variety of creative enterprises annually including exhibitions, panel discussions, mural productions, and youth workshops. Mizrachi is also a graduate of the Parsons School of Design in New York City.
