Yolanda Fundora was born in Havana, Cuba. She grew up in New York City, studied at the College of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University, spent 10 years making art in San Juan, Puerto Rico and returned in 1991 to New York City.
She has been making art in the digital realm since acquiring her first Mac 512K computer in 1985. She has participated in two major shows at the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The first in 1990, Art and Communication, explored the use of modern technologies as media for contemporary art. The second of these: Toward a Digital Aesthetic: The Art of Yolanda Fundora, emphasized the unique characteristics that digital production brings to the visual arts. Fundora’s work forms part of many private and corporate collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art’s permanent collection. Toward a Digital Aesthetic is also the name of her book on the subject and is available through Amazon.
Besides her fine art, Yolanda designs textiles illustrates children’s books and works with local businesses to create their own unique branding. Her current work, all digitally imagined, is exhibited on an ongoing basis at MONDO in Summit, NJ. Her hub website for all things visual: www.urban-amish.com.
