Ernesto Rivera (Santo Domingo, 1983) is an artist living in New York City. His work is frequently described as poetical, thoughtful, and intriguing experience. He holds a BFA from Parsons-The New School (2019) after completing an AAS at Altos de Chavon School of Design (2017). He studied for the MFA Theory and History of Design at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico in Mexico City (2015) conducting a research on editorial processes of design critique writings. He also enrolled on essay seminars at CIALC-UNAM, an experience that could be traced in his subsequence art projects, dealing narrative mechanisms and their relationship with images creation. He first graduated as an Interior Designer from Universidad Iberoamericana de Santo Domingo (2005), and worked actively in the business for ten years.
