Born (1972) and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Astrid Dick currently lives and works in Paris. At age 18, excited by mathematics and social frictions, begins her studies in economics in Buenos Aires, while continuing to draw in her free time. In 2002, is awarded a Ph.D. in economics from MIT. Having led a double-life between art and economic research for many years, at age 36 abandons her post as university professor to devote herself entirely to art. She was artist-in-residence at the Vermont Studio Center, the Atlantic Center for the Arts in Florida with painter Suzanne McClelland, the Spinnerei in Leipzig, and her work has been shown at the Grand Palais in Paris, the Manoir de la Ville de Martigny in Switzerland and at Château du Val Fleury in Gif-sur-Ivette.
