Daniela Stubbs-Levi is a Peruvian artist, poet, and musician
based in New York City.
Stubbs-Leví received her BA in Graphic Arts from Toulouse Lautrec in Lima Peru, and later a BFA in Visual Arts from the University Paris VIII in France. She is the co-founder of current press, an experimental plattform for books and zine projects made by women.
Stubbs-Leví was born in Berlin, raised in Lima, studied in Paris and currently lives in New York. Her sense of displacement informs her work and leads her to embrace and delve into the relativism implied in the act of remembering: memory is not a fixed device but more likely an ever-changing frame with which we measure reality. She is interested in dissecting music into sound—as a pivot balancing between language and meaning—, and notations for their use in different contexts exploring the nature of time and its connection to emotion. She uses mediums such as video, photography, sound, drawing and writing as individual voices that coexist giving each one space for dialogue.
Stubbs-Levi has shown her work in London, Paris, Lima, and New York.
