Adriana G. Prat is an academically-trained scientist with a PhD in Biophysics turned abstract artist. As you speak with her, you will learn that Adriana has also been passionate about the environment since her childhood days in Argentina, when her father educated her to value nature that provide us with food and beauty. This understanding influenced her curiosity that led to life choices, including her decision to become a scientist and a vegetarian.
After Adriana moved to the US, a more introspective lifestyle inspired her to embrace art-making. She studied the basics of drawing and painting mainly at adult education institutions, but she considers herself highly self-taught. After switching her full time focus to art, an art residency in amazing insular Iceland, further motivated her to find a new unique way to communicate her environmental concerns. Informed by her scientific experience, through her work and the work of other artists - via her curatorial activities (see i3Cartists.com), Adriana’s quest is to find a way to live a more sustainable life and to inspire change in others to halt climate change. For her artworks, she works on alternative painting supports such as corrugated cardboard and repurposed canvases.
Adriana has exhibited at open studios, galleries, alternative spaces, and museums, in Argentina, and the US, mostly in the greater Boston area. More recently, she has shown in galleries in Reykjavík, Iceland, and London, UK. When not at her Cambridge studio, Adriana welcomes visitors to a shared studio in the Boston SoWa Art & Design District.
