Event Details

MELANIE PEREIRA ALVES is a Portuguese-American visual artist living in San Francisco, Ca. Alves has a 5 year degree (equivalent to a MA degree) in Fine Arts from Porto University, Portugal. She has also studied at the famous Ecole Nationalle Superieure des Beaux Arts de Paris and ENSBA de Bordeaux, France.
Over the past few years, Alves has been focusing her art on addressing the refugee crisis, the war on Syria, immigration, gun violence and culture of fear.
Alves has been largely influenced by the interaction of performance and installation art, the motion of video art, and the marginality of street art.
To her, the concept is King, therefore the idea will dictate the best medium to be used to materialize her vision.
Since moving to San Francisco from London UK in 2011, Melanie Alves has exhibited in various solo and group exhibitions including shows at Whitewalls, 111 Minna Gallery and Modern Eden. One of her latest exhibitions was a group exhibit titled “Imagine peace now”, a show that traveled to different locations around the United States for a year's time, bringing awareness to the gun violence that torments our Society.
