Nelli Astvatsatrian is an Armenian-born artist and educator based between Los Angeles and Berkeley, CA. She received her B.A in Art Practice and Rhetoric at the University of California, Berkeley in 2019.
Nelli's interdisciplinary work in printmaking, figurative illustration, and textiles takes the intergenerational transmission of memory and diasporic perception of home as a starting point. Through repetition of bodies and motifs, she attempts to create new and tangible traditions in her art.
Nelli is currently a high school AP Art, Drawing and Painting, and Photography teacher at Tilden Preparatory School in Albany, CA.
