Katya Mezhibovskaya

Katya Mezhibovskaya was born in Moscow, Russia and raised in Brooklyn, New York. She first studied Painting, Art history, and Gender Studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore and then transferred to the Graphic Design department at the School of Visual Arts in New York, focusing on print and book design, as well as Semiotics. She completed her degree at SVA  with a year-long thesis project, entitled Access Excess, which took the form of a public exhibition on the Lower East Side of NYC in the spring of 2008. This project helped to further fuse her two halves of art/ art history and graphic design. Access Excess included the appropriation and re-interpretation of common food product packaging as a means of utilizing the familiar form, while substituting the original contents with more intellectually nutritious (condensed guides to the work of artists, philosophers, and critics) and content, thereby providing access to ideas and histories usually deemed inaccessible. She is a book jacket designer for Vintage Espanol, the Spanish-language imprint of Vintage Books (Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group of Random House,) happily packaging Spanish classics (Cervantes, Neruda, Marquez, Lorca, Borges, Bolano, etc…) and contemporary fiction and non-fiction.
