Violet Cheverez is an animator and illustrator based in New York City. A recent graduate at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY, with a BFA in Sculpture, Cheverez tends to begin her work alone but ultimately collaborates with artists working in other mediums to add sound and visual elements. In the past she has organised guerrilla-style art exhibitions, inviting artists to show work in a public space. The public aspect thus welcomes passersby to come in, interact with, and become a part of the project. Cheverez’s work is collaborative in the sense that the friends, the people, and the space that she works with becomes a part of the making process. Local stomping grounds are often the subjects for her creative projects; what is seen and heard within these spaces becomes the material with which she creates.
