Victoria Alicea DelValle

"Tori Valle"

is a Puerto Rican visual artist, designer, & educator living in Boston, MA, who will forever represent her Villa Victoria community. Her current artistic practice has roots in storytelling as she has performed as a spoken word poet at Louder Than the Bomb Massachusetts where she was recognized with MassLEAP’s Phyllis Wheatley Award, for challenging injustice with work that reflects on the social and political history of the place she is from. In 2018, she represented Boston on the final stage at the international youth poetry slam festival, Brave New Voices, in Houston, Texas. She has also performed her poetry at the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard University.

 

She transitioned into pursuing her passion for visual arts receiving a BFA at New York University Tisch School of the Arts in 2022. 

She uses her foundation with spoken word performance to develop her visual art concepts and engage with students. Introduced to Boston’s art community through her participation in multiple social justice centered youth art programs, she recognizes the significance of art education and mentoring young people. 

​She explores identity, femininity, generational trauma, hidden truths, history, and childhood through the lens of street art, graffiti, fantasy horror and surreal humor using the acrylic, ink, aerosol, clay, charcoal, fabric, sculpture, interactive media and poetry.

​Her work as a visual artist, designer, & educator has granted her opportunities in working with Converse, Boston Public Schools, The Latinx Project @ NYU, The Dorchester Art Project, The Boston Compass, The Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, MassLEAP, and with multiple small businesses and local artists.
