CECILIA PRANDI was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Both of her grandparents, from Italian immigrant families in Argentina, were artists and instilled in her a passion for all art forms. They were her first teachers, and she was deeply influenced by them. Prandi graduated in Fine Arts and Stage Design and moved to the United States in 2008. Prandi has been living in different states, and from those rich cultural experiences of being an immigrant coming from an immigrant family, the themes that always have moved and inspired her to create are related to cultures, people interactions, the context, and her emotions.
