Bemis School of Art

Vlada Benedetti


I am a multi-media artist born and raised in Colorado. My first experience having art in a show was at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts at the age of 5, and I attended classes at Bemis from the age of 6 to 17. After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design and living/working on the east coast for 17 years, I decided to move back to Colorado, using the Rocky Mountains as further research and inspiration for an ongoing project called SAFARINON. I am interested in world-building mythologies, and exploring the creative experiences of other beings on this planet, through my work.

I have lived in Paris, Vienna, and Reykjavik as a working artist, and have shown work both as a solo artist and in group shows at NADA, Art Basil, Center-Berlin, The Sound Museum, The Power Plant, Art in General, iCi, Drop Dead Festival, World Dominance International Film Festival, The Walters Art Museum, The New Museum, RedLine, featured on, and co-founded/co-curated an experimental and performance art gallery called MEME in Cambridge MA, winning Best Gallery of Boston in 2010. As a working artist in the design world, I was a character artist for 5 years on the MTV/Viacom video game franchise ROCKBAND, and worked as an educator for the Art & Nature Center at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA.
