Melissa Godoy Nieto is a multidisciplinary mexican artist and designer. Born in Tijuana (1985) and raised in Culiacán Sinaloa, México. Currently based in Brooklyn, NY with a BA in Industrial Design from Pratt Institute.
Co-founder of The Poetry Club Art Space and Head Visual artist for The Tablets.
In my work, I enjoy exploring the directions that different mediums can take lead by experimentation and improvisation. I have a particular respect and fascination for traditional crafts and materials, driven by a strong interest in pre-hispanic history, art and hieroglyphics. My work incorporates hand-made interactions, colors, and textures in a contemporary frame using alternative techniques and structures, often referencing the vibrant palette, dynamic and hand crafted aesthetic of Mexican culture.
