Margaret-Inga Urías is a New York based artist who works across the disciplines of drawing, photography, installation and sculpture.

Her work—which is rooted in scientific research—considers how entire worlds come from and return to dust, a substance that she believes could tell the story of everything that has ever existed.

Margaret received her BA from Columbia University in 2001 and an MS from Pratt Institute in 2004. She has exhibited at the Bronx Museum of Art, String Room Gallery in Aurora, NY, City Without Walls Gallery and Visual Arts Center, which were both in New Jersey. She has been an artist in residence at Saltonstal Foundation for the Arts in Ithaca, NY and the Artist in the Marketplace Program at the Bronx Museum.  She is a recipient of the Ruth and Harold Chenven Foundation Grant, the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant and a New York Foundation of the Arts Fellowship.

And her most recent of work titled “Return to Me” is now on view at the Equity Gallery in NYC.
