Melanie Ubaldo (b. 1992) graduated with a BA in Fine Arts from the IUA in 2016 and is currently in the MA Fine Arts program in the IUA. In Melanie’s work, image and text are inextricably linked, where deconstructionist paintings incorporate text with graffiti-like vandalism oftentimes of her own crude experiences of others preconceptions, thus exposing the power of immediate, unreflected judgment. She has taken part in various exhibitions at home and abroad. Her work has since been acquired by the Reykjavik Museum for its permanent collection.
