Teresa Cacho is a multidisciplinary artist working on drawings, oil paintings, film, photography, installations, computational visualizations, and mixed techniques. She is a storyteller focused on portraying New York City people and their surrounding landscapes, capturing their emotions and essences.
Her process begins with a chosen subject put through variations achieved with different techniques, allowing it to shift away from its initial concept and acquire a new identity. She decontextualizes her subject to reconstruct it with a set of applied rules.
Teresa Cacho currently produces art and digital art at a commercial level. She received her M.F.A. from the Complutense University of Madrid and spends most of her time at her East Village Studio in New York City. Some of her relevant installation works are 'Oligarch Cub' in Brooklyn in 2016, 'Sukkahville' art installation in Toronto in 2012, and 'Divine Line' at Inrivers art Gallery (Brooklyn). She is a founding member of the art collective Vainica Project and has been included in solo and group exhibitions at Aronson Gallery (N.Y.C.), Fowler Studios (Brooklyn), The Roommate Hotel (N.Y.C.), Mel Lastman (Toronto). Her former experience includes working for several New York architecture and fabrication studios, where she acquired her experience as a project manager and architectural elements fabricator; skills she incorporates into her processes and creations.
