Marilinda Rivera Natural raw artist born in Dominican Republic raised in Puerto Rico now based in Los Angeles.
Actress/model always attracted to create through her passions. Before living in Los Angeles resides in New York while as a model marks her territory with her victory of reality show Project Runway Season 3.
After Project Runway's victory many doors opened up for Marilinda. Working with several high fashion designers like Galliano, Roberto Cavalli and many others including campaigns for Old Navy, Target, Nexus and many others.
Her dark side is the dominant in her art becoming alive in such beautiful way that keeps her in alert of her unconsciousness reminding her life’s roller coaster possibilities. Her work is inspired by self experiences in life; from running from love to open to life. She sculpts with used founded materials, like styrofoam and founded metals like nails representing POWER and a NEW POSSIBILITY.
Marilinda’s latest exciting project is her inclusion as one of only 10 local artists invited to take part in Westfield Century City philanthropic holiday program, ‘The Reindeer Project,’ a first-of-its-kind holiday art collection of 12 oversized acrylic reindeer designed by prominent L.A. artists for an auction benefiting Inner-City Arts. It is a way for Marilinda to use her art to give back to the community, especially giving back to the children, a very important mission in her life
Her dramatic experiences allows her to breakthrough all obstacles through art. Creates a raw influential path with music and fashion.
The highlight of her work: 50% commissions go to her mission in Amboseli Africa, to give the Maasai Village she visited last year an arts&crafts school to support the village. Her vision for the world is becoming a reality because of her passion for art by organizing art group shows and musical events to promote and fundraise her mission. A humanitarian was born after her travels, specially this one: AFRICA, The Mother Land. Intrigued enough she begins to collaborate with other artists and musicians like Mujer X, Juan Sanchez Diaz, Don Gator and The Toledo Show.
