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, Visual and Cultural Studies.
Currently lives in Santo Domingo, The Dominican Republic, where she works as a full time artist. Key words that has described Alma´s work are sublime, intimate and impresive. It is a work made from a personal perspective and intrinsic 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 unique way of combining and arranging visual simbols and concepts.
