Statement

Karen Fiorito received her Master’s in Fine Art in Printmaking from Arizona State University and her Bachelor's of Fine Art in Printmaking from the University of the Arts in Pennsylvania.  

For the past 8 years, she has owned and operated Buddha Cat Press, a socially conscious printmaking studio and publishing company. Most recently her work was showcased at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles for the Pacific Standard Time Project.  

Her work has also been featured in major publications such as Art in America, the Huffington Post, the LA Weekly, and URB Magazine. She was the recipient of a Puffin Foundation Grant in 2005 and a Change, Inc. Grant from Robert Rauchenberg in 2004.

Fiorito also recently curated Evolution Revolution: the Interconnectedness of All Beings, an exhibition featuring the work of William Wegman, Sue Coe, Robbie Conal and other prominent artists.

She recently was the first resident artist at Jo Lankester Limited Edition Prints in Townsville, Australia, where she also was commissioned by the Perk Tucker Regional Gallery to produce a two-sided light box on Flinders Square. Currently Ms. Fiorito divides her time between Los Angeles, CA and Australia. She is currently working on a solo show to debut in Los Angeles in 2013.
