Laura Cantor/ Spring Issue

As an artist living in the Bronx, New York City, urban images are central to her work. She am a printmaker, painter and mixed media artist with a degree in visual art from Empire SUNY (2005) and an MFA with a concentration in printmaking from Lehman College CUNY, 2010.

“ I work primarily as a printmaker but I also draw, paint and use collage. I live in the Bronx, New York City and this informs my work. Structures of New York - bridges, water towers, elevated trains- fascinate me. I am drawn to their geometries and patterns. Mechanical parts and their similarities with biological and botanical forms is another theme I am pursuing. I try to approach these subjects with imagination and playfulness.”

In 2006 She had a solo show at the N.Y.C. Transit Museum and at the Manhattan campus of Empire College. She has had her work purchased by Montefiore Hospital and work in the collections of the N.Y.C. Transit Museum, Lehman College, Empire College and St. Louis University. She has worked with 2 non profit art groups in the Bronx, Bronx Printmakers and Studio 889.
