Art by Alyssa Anne

Seattle Unique Boutique presents: Art by Alyssa Anne

 

Alyssa anne is a self-taught artist whose creations are influenced by her daily social work and nightly dreams. As a child, she fell in love with portraits of all mediums by watching her grandmother paint and draw people in her Brooklyn studio. On canvas, her love for portraits and realism is combined with the surreal worlds that exist within her imagination. She uses a mix of acrylic paint, ink, and paper cut outs to contrast black and white sketches on top of colorful backgrounds. Inspired by space, queerness, and feminism, Alyssa’s work aims to reclaim the body in a world that tries to dictate how our bodies should be and uses her experience with anxiety and depression to explore the enmeshed experiences of pain and beauty within our existence.
