Adriana G. Prat is an academically-trained scientist, with a PhD in Biophysics, turned abstract artist and curator on a quest to inspire action for the environmental crisis.
As you speak with Adriana, you will learn that she has also been passionate about the environment since her childhood days in Argentina, when her father sparked her love and respect for nature, and a sense of the beauty and vastness of our planet and its vulnerabilities. These early insights influenced her curiosity that led to life choices, including her decision to become a scientist. After Adriana moved to the US, a more introspective lifestyle inspired her to become a fervent artist. An art residency in 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 others via her curatorial activities (see i3Cartists.com), Adriana’s quest is to find a way 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. She also experiments with assemblage and other mixed media techniques with rejected materials.
Adriana has exhibited at galleries, academic institutions, art centers, museums, and alternative spaces, in Argentina, and the US, mostly in the greater Boston area, and in galleries in Reykjavík, Iceland, and London, UK. She is a juried member of the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA) and the Cambridge Art Association (CAA, and the SoWa Artists Guild, among others. When not at her Cambridge studio, Adriana welcomes visitors to a shared studio in the Boston SoWa Art & Design District.
