Lives and works in Mexico City


Daniela Libertad graduated from New York University´s (NYU) Masters Program in Visual Art (2010) and the Escuela Nacional de Pintura, Escultura y Grabado “La Esmeralda” (2007). In addition she studied at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Karlsruhe in Germany (2006) with Professor Ernst Caramelle.


Using drawing, video, and photography, Libertad explores the diverse relationships between objectsand her body, the perception of the intangible, mysticism and its connection to everyday life. Through her work, she investigates how sculptural dynamics are constructed and deposited onto objects; searching for a connection between weight, tension, and balance — materials, forms, and objects.
