Laura Arminda Kingsley was born in the USA in 1984 to Dominican parents. She lives and works in Dübendorf. Kingsley is an independent visual artist who works in a variety of media, including painting and sculpture.

Laura’s work captures the essence of humanity as a form of healing from past realities while using it to connect with her African ancestral heritage. Kingsley's reference to oceanic life forms is a means of resistance to the advancing pollution of the Caribbean Sea while addressing the enduring legacy of colonialist notions of race and gender in our society.

She holds an Associate Degree in Fine Arts from Chavón in La Romana, Dominican Republic, a Bachelor of Science from the City University of New York - Hunter College, and a Master in Fine Arts from the California College of the Arts.

Her exhibition participations include Cuerpo e Identidad at NYLAAT in New York, Weg at Helmhaus Zurich, Remember you are but tiny bits of existence at Tableau Zurich, Sculpture in the City in London, the CICA Museum in Seoul, Suspended Matter at the Berkeley Art Center in Berkeley, as well as Stranger in the Village at the Aargauer Kunsthaus and shared spaces in change at the Kornhausforum in Bern. Her work was awarded the Dorothy & George Saxe Fellowship in 2012 and 2014, the Kunstatelier-Stipendium of the City of Dübendorf, and the LOCUS Micro-Grant in 2021.
