Patricia Villalobos Echeverría was born in Tennessee to Salvadoran parents and grew up in Managua, Nicaragua. Through a hybrid practice of prints, photos, videos and installations, she explores how reproducible forms of representation alter our notions of singularity and various states of flux that we enter and exit within the context of globalization and an increasingly transnational era. She received an MFA from West Virginia University (1990) and a BFA from Louisiana State University (1988).
