Ever since Alessandra Maria first emailed me on November 1st, 2011 I’ve been enamored by her and her artwork. Supersonic was the first blog to feature her work - that same day - and shortly thereafter she was featured on Juxtapoz where, from that point on, she’s been a constant on art websites all around the world showcasing her gorgeous paintings and becoming a fixture in a young art movement slowly making its mark on the aesthetic landscape of history.
Originally from Seattle, Washington, Alessandra was still attending the Pratt Institute when she emailed me, graduating in 2012 but remaining in New York where she currently lives and works. It’s been a pleasure to see her style evolve and to see her art embraced into the eyes of countless viewers and I’ve always wanted to sit down and talk to her about all of it - which, thankfully, I recently had the pleasure to do.
