Gina Beavers (born 1978 in Athens, Greece) lives and works in New York City. She received her BA of Anthropology at the University of Virginia, a MFA in Painting and Drawing at the Art Institute of Chicago and a MS in Education from Brooklyn College. Using photos from the internet in general and social media in particular as an inspirational source, Beavers creates her paintings and installations. Her three-dimensional canvases pick up various contemporary themes such as make-up tutorials, food pictures or body builder selfies. In her reliefs she succeeds in reproducing small details, connecting high and low art while simultaneously reflecting on contemporary society.
