Alicia Framis (1967 Barcelona, ES) is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work blends architecture, design, fashion and performance. Her work is project based and focuses on different aspects of human existence within contemporary urban society. Framis often starts out from actual social dilemmas to develop fictional settings. Collaborating with different artists from different art fields she then develops platforms for interaction.
