Alice Mizrachi is a painter and teaching artist in New York. Through painting, murals, printmaking and installations, Mizrachi creates figurative work that depicts characters whose relationships and emotions reflect her perspective of the social environment. Mizrachi seeks to spread empathy and compassion through site-specific projects that are positive visual responses to social issues that affect neighboring residents.
In her roles as artist and teacher, Mizrachi explores art as a path for communities and individuals to heal through creative expression. She works to empower and inspire women and girls by elevating females to sacred archetypes in her art. As a teaching artist, Mizrachi extends her personal commitment to art as a tool for healing through hands-on creative projects that help others express their ideas about topics such as environmentalism, identity and community.
Mizrachi co-founded Younity in 2006, a women’s art collective that has provided a professional platform for hundreds of women in the arts through exhibitions, panel discussions, mural productions, and youth workshops.
Mizrachi occasionally lectures at universities and participates in discussions on arts and activism topics; she also writes curriculum and leads staff-development workshops for arts programming. She has received numerous grants and has an ongoing studio residency in Manhattan.
