Melissa Godoy Nieto is a multidisciplinary artist born and raised in Mexico, she's been based in Brooklyn NY for 11 years.

Drawing and painting are her primary practices and the dominant instruments she uses for exploring different formats such as performance, installation, and video. She enjoys playing with color as a form of symbolism, involving visual and physical textures.

In constant search of expanding her practice she collaborates with other visual artists and musicians, and in 2014 she designed and co-built a small Mexican restaurant in Brooklyn. 

In her spare time she hosts drink-and-draw nights with her friends, makes delicious mezcalitas, dances pretty well, and learns to surf--pretty well too.

She holds a BFA in Industrial Design from Pratt Institute, NY
