“Though she graduated from Pratt Institute only in 2012, rising artist Alessandra Maria is already making waves with her delicate, mixed-media artworks.” - Hi Fructose Magazine

“Alessandra's beautifully eerie illustrations appear to be illuminated by the night sky. Her subject's glowing eyes make us wonder who exactly they are.” -Juxtapoz Magazine

 

Born and raised in Seattle in 1989, now working in Brooklyn, New York. Finding resonance with Dave Hickey's theory that America is, at it's heart, a pagan nation which builds up it's own idols and in turn tears them down, Alessandra's work attempts to go back to the historic start of iconography, remaking it from a feminist perspective.
