Alexis Batakis - BFA 2021

BFA Studio Art - Intermedia, BS Neuroscience

Inspired by my neuroscience background, I have created a body of works that represents my journey through science as an artist, a student, and a woman. I use the beautiful, strange world of microbiology to create worlds of funky, surreal art rendered in vibrant colors. My goal was to foster interest in science as an experience. My notebooks and diagrams have become the foundation that my thesis has grown from; all of my art pieces have stemmed from my notes and my involvement in the scientific world.
