Tumblr please help me share my artwork!! I need funding to get Viva La Femme off the ground, I know times are tough but if I have one dollar per note I’d be fully funded by now. Please help me spread the word about my campaign and please donate so I can make this dream happen! I need to raise $3,000 to launch this brand!! I need $400 alone to showcase this artwork for an entire weekend at the venue this summer.

I want to share my art with all the girls around the world. Let’s show them that positive representation matters!!

Patricia Alvarado is a kick ass artist that grew up in Chicago, studied at the New York Studio Recsidency Program and is currently at her last year at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. One of her favourite works of her is a slow motion video (tell uuu uuu goootaa c it) called “I’m In It (I mean if sweet and sour sauce is really all you need to eat my Asian pussy)” (click!). Always awesome and with loads of new projects going on so keeeeep ut eyes open for dis ladY.
How did you get in to making art?
I was a pretty fucked up teenager, like drinking at 14, I lied about everything, and I was in an abusive relationship, and my parents we’re always super concerned about how I was gonna turn out, like if I was gonna even survive through high school/amount to anything in life, so they signed me up for this painting class on weekends where I basically copied Georgia O’Keefe paintings verbatim onto my own canvases. It probably did end up saving my life so props 2 my parents.
What artwork that isn’t made by you did you wish was made by you?
Rather than a specific artwork, I’m so in awe of the endurance and courage exhibited by performance artists, historically and currently. I want to channel that strength within my work, always.
If you could erase the existence of one artwork that you made, which one would it be?
Tbh I feel like every work I’ve made has contributed in some part to my artistic sensibilities. I started college as a photography major, and within the past year ended up switching to Fine Art because my work has changed SO much. But my photo background is a huge advantage for me when it comes to compositions + documentation. I mean a lot of my early work is embarrassingly simple and uninteresting, but I don’t think I’d erase any of it.
Three words about your work on Soapbox at gal space?

Taking this class online was the worst decision ever. I will never put myself through this again. I just want to pass it, and at this point it seems impossible. Why did I do this to myself…
