Alida Cervantes

Alida was born in San Diego in 1972, but raised in Tijuana by her parents who had recently moved there from Mexico City before her birth. She has spent most of her life moving continuously from one side of the border to the other. Alida holds a B.A. in Visual Arts from UCSD but also spent two years in Italy studying painting. She also spent four years working as an artist in New York City. Alida continues to live and work in the Tijuana/San Diego area and this constant travel and exposure informs her work.
