Animator and Artist
Angela Stempel is a Venezuelan-American artist born in California and raised in Caracas. Her work is inspired by people, rhythm, color and drippy shapes. From these influences she constructs narrative and abstract animated films, installation and illustrations.
After graduating from Tufts University and the Museum School in Boston, with a combined degree in Fine Art and Art History, she moved to New York to pursue a career in animation. In 2012, she was the recipient of the Traveling Fellowship from the Museum School, which allowed her to travel to South East Asia to learn about the local traditions of puppetry and live performances. She has worked as animator, compositor and assisting in fabrication in her time as intern and freelancer at several motion design studios in NY and LA. She has also directed several music videos and independent films.
Currently she lives in LA and recently graduated from CalArts with an MFA in Experimental Animation.
