Nayda A. Cuevas Ramos was born in Hato Rey, PR. She obtained a BFA in Fine Art (2002) from Stetson University in Deland FL and her MFA in Visual Arts (2015) at Lesley College of Art in Cambridge, MA. As a means of negotiating alienation and the absence of familiar people and places she turned to the arts to explore her identity. Ms. Cuevas passion emerged for unearthing a visual language to better articulate through visual arts her observation and/or interpretation of her Latino American experience. As an artist her interest lies in using history, art history, and current cultural trends to produce images of both her physical and emotional experiences of displacement.
Cuevas has exhibited Internationally: Museo de Arte de Caguas, Caguas PR; Mattatuck Museum CT; Clemente Center NY, NY; Palazzo Ca’Zanardi, Venice, Italy; Fitchburg Art Museum, MA.
