Welcome to RxArt
My name is Gabi Pérez. I was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I am the current film/video intern for RxArt. Being born and raised on an island has given me the opportunity to experience a life that most people dream of. The whole “I live where you vacation” was a very true statement for my first 18 years, but ever since moving away from home, I have realized that there is so much that I still have left to learn about the world. In the past four years, I have crossed paths with situations that have expanded my curiosity about life. I believe that is where my interest in art truly stems from; being able to communicate through visuals is the universal language.
I recently graduated with a BFA in Art Photography from the college of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University. I am currently amongst the many who make up the city of New York and have decided to take a plunge into the art world here. I am positive that joining RxArt will give me the opportunity to exercise my photography skills and in turn promote this fantastic organization. I strongly believe that art helps to heal, is essential for a child’s growth, and I am very happy to be a part of this organization.
