Bibi Flores

Bibi Flores (b. 1976 Austin, Texas) relocated to Austin, Texas after being based in New York since 2005. Flores is a Mexican-American artist whose abstract works, and paintings inhabit healing energy. Energy exists through healing colors, lines, and shapes. Flores’s works focuses on documenting abstractions and a research of healing from trauma from oppressive systems, allowing the spirit to align in the higher states of the mind, heart, and spirit in a plane of dimensional energy. Flores’s work consists mainly of paintings, and also some performative videos and photography, as sensorial installations, though she always includes paintings within all her mediums. Flores started in 1997 in Monterrey Mexico, and she earned an MFA in Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in 2010. Grants, and awards include Emergency Grant Adolph, & Esther Gottlieb Foundation, Artist Aid from Artist Fellowship Inc, UMEZ Art Engagement, and Creative Engagement from Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, and Upper Manhattan Empowerment Development Zone Corporation, New York City Artists Corps-CAC Grant from New York Foundation of The Arts, West Collection Grant, and Nicholas Markatos Scholarship Award from National Academy School and Museum. Flores has exhibited mainly in the United States and Mexico in galleries and museums including El Barrio Artspace PS109, Perry Rubenstein, Air Gallery, Museo del Centenario, Centro Cultural Fátima, and Museo Metropolitano. Flores has presented her talks and healing workshops, related with her work, in spaces like the NYC Mayor’s Office Against Domestic Violence, Hunter College, MARCO Museum, and UANL.
