Alma Peguero, Dominican Visual Artist. Studied at Altos de Chavón School of Design, Dominican Republic, 2007. She received the Charles Bludhorn Scholarship to continue studies at Parsons The New School for Design, in New York City, from where she completed her studies in Fine Arts. 

Currently an 2020 MFA candidate at University at Buffalo, where she also teaches. Alma works with the inephable. Words that have described her works are sublime, intimate and impresive. It is a work made mainly from a personal investigation of universal subjects. Philosophical and humanitarian. In her words, the images are proposals to escalate a new way of experimenting life, by connecting with a sensation that can be given by her intrinsic way of combining and  arranging visual simbols and concepts.
