Natalia Sanchez was born in Bayamon, Puerto Rico in 1992. After graduating high school, she moved to Columbus, Ohio, where she graduated from the Columbus College of Art and Design in May of 2015, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts with a Minor in Art Therapy.
Sanchez is interested in exploring mental and emotional realities. Her use of realism helps ground her abstract concepts, which develop into surreal, psychological realms.
This past year 2017, was a very big year for Sanchez. In January she began painting murals, her first one titled “Despierta Boricua” (Wake Up Puerto Rican) in Santurce , Puerto Rico. This mural is a cry for an agricultural awakening on the island in order to transcend the economic crisis that Puerto Rico is currently going through, depicted the economic crisis that Puerto Rico is currently going through. She was quoted on a National Geographic article titled, “7 Cities to See Powerful Street Art”. Since then she has made over 10 murals between Puerto Rico and Columbus, including a piece for Warhol and Wall Street Design Company and a 1,400 sq. ft mural at Trism, a restaurant owned by the A&R Creative Group.
In June 2018 she curated "Hidden Layers- An Augmented Reality Exhibition" at Blockfort in Columbus, Oh. Natalia Sanchez and, Co-curator, Ariel Peguero, gathered 17 Columbus based artist and taught them how to implement this technology into their artwork. The idea for this show stemmed from Sanchez's 'Electric Paintings' (2016). Augmented Reality Artwork has opened up a new world for Sanchez and she plans on implementing AR in future murals and works.
