Angela Stempel is a Venezuelan-American artist and film director, born in California and raised in Caracas.

Her work is inspired by obsessive people watching, site-specific color palettes and the tantalizing possibilities of abstraction. From these influences she constructs narrative and experimental animated films, installation and illustrations.

Her client work includes projects for The New York Times, Adult Swim, Apple Music, Buck, Droga5, Collins, Hornet Inc., Imaginary Forces, among others.

She lives in LA.
