Maria Builes is a video & performance artist. She was born in Lima, Peru, in 1980, and moved to Miami in the early 90’s.
Her work often critiques and comments on idealism, sexuality, consumerism, and consumption. Her goal is to create a visual vocabulary that captures the components that constitute the new American dream, such as competition, consumption, and a disregard for consequence.
She currently lives and works in New York City.
