Neta Levinson was born in 1990 in Jerusalem, Israel to an Argentinean mother who had fled the latin american dictatorships of the 80’s. Right after Neta was born, the Gulf War erupted, so her mother took her to the Netherlands for a couple months in the search of some calm for a newborn. Neta’s mother always yearned to go back to latinamerica, but Argentina was not yet a safe place, so instead they moved to Mexico City, where Neta grew up as a happy child. Once high-school was over, she went on a year long backpacking by herself in which she began to embrace her identity as a nomad. She understood that the only way to comprehend herself was through art-making, so she moved to Chicago to attend the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, from which she graduated with both a Bachelor in Fine Arts and a Bachelor in Visual and Critical Studies. While in Chicago, she met a lovely man with who she got married. They both still live in Chicago, and make art that ranges from writing or visual all the way to music.
