Liliya Zalevskaya is a multidisciplinary artist working in digital media and printmaking. Zalevskaya was born in Kiev, Ukraine. As a young teenager, her family immigrated to America as the Soviet Union fell apart. These events continue to inform her interest in how social structures are perceived versus how they are experienced by the individuals living within them. Her work is the artifact of play, through which she interrogates the roles as a maker, actor, director, and editor in the construction of a fantasy that questions reality. Zalevskaya received a BFA in Printmaking from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and an MFA in Digital Media from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She currently teaches Printmaking and Digital Photography at Gaston College, Dallas, NC.
