Nathalie Regard (1969) graduated from the Master of Fine Art at The Glasgow School of Art, in Scotland (2005). She grew-up in Chile where she developed a self-taught carrier as visual artist before moving to Mexico City (1997-1999). In 1999, she moved to Paris where she began to work series of large-format paintings (Grands Formats: Beaume D'Ether 2001), being awarded the Ateliers de la Ville de Paris (2002-2008).

She has participated in group exhibitions in France, U.K. and China, as La Galerie, Centre d’Art Contemporain, Noisy-le-Sec (2001), La Mazarine, Paris (2008), Tramway, Glasgow in 2005 and the China Central Academy of Fine Arts, CAFA (2006).

She has had several solo shows in Mexico City, as at the Autonomous University of Mexico (UAM, 2000), Arts and Craft Factory (Faro de Oriente, 2002), Casa de Francia and at the Espace d'Art Yvonamor Palix (2003). In 2006, she was part of a group show at the Print National Museum in Mexico City and in the II Universal Forum of Cultures, at the Center of The Arts, Fundidora Park, Monterrey, curated by Fernando Delmar, where she exhibited her large format work (Big Scanning Project, 2007) including the publication of the artist's book (Void Painting: 1>250.000) awarded by Fondart and was the subject of various international publications as Art News, Art Nexus, Les Lettres Françaises, Paris-Art, Art-Public, Visual Arts in Mexico: XXI Century.

She moved to Mexico City in 2010 and founded the Lyrica artists workshop. Her investigation related to the notions of perception and mental images since 2011 made her develop a research combining performance art and cognitive science.

The project was exposed during the Brain Art Exhibitions at The Human Brain Mapping Conferences (HBM, Québec City in 2011, Beijing, China in 2012 and Hamburg in 2014), her project was presented at Brainhack.org in Sèvres 2013 and at the Institut Pasteur in 2016.
