    Jessica Alazraki

    Biography

    I was born and raised in Mexico City and have a bachelors degree in Communications from Universidad Anáhuac.

     I worked as a creative in advertising right after finishing high school and moved to New York City in 1998 where I worked at various advertising agencies that specialized in targeting the U.S. Hispanic market. At the same time, I was studying at the Parsons School in which I earned a degree in Graphic Design. I also entered other CE graphic design programs at various schools in NYC including the School of Visual Arts and Cooper Union.

     After becoming a Mom, I quit my job but continued to work as a visual artist. In 2008, I first discovered my passion for drawing and painting. Since then, I have worked with live models helping me to expand my knowledge of anatomical drawing and figure painting.

     After my first year of studies for a Masters Degree in Figurative Painting (2015-2016) at the New York Academy of Art, I have been preparing my self-directed body of work that represents my artistic interest, my personality and contributes to creating social awareness.

     I have exhibited my paintings in the U.S.A. in over 30 groups shows including several Galleries in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Long Island, Poughkeepsie, California, and Philadelphia as well as in Sotheby’s Auction House in NY and various museums like the Attleboro Arts Museum in Massachusetts and the New Britain Museum of America Art. I had one Solo Show in NYC and have participated in more than five group shows in Mexico City and Puebla, Mexico.
