Alessandra Duarte, what can I say?
Whoever knows her, knows her talent as well.
She is that kind of person, that inspires. You watch her draw, or paint, and you get into trance - wishing you had that gift.
Ale, graduated from Bard College with a BA in Studio Arts and Art History. Her work is fantastical-abstraction, influenced by Klimt, with the use of blue/green tones.
Some of her other influences are: Lucian Freud, Janaina Tschape, Rothko, Paul Gauguin, Matisse, and Peter Doig.
I'm not the best person to "criticize" paintings, so I'm going to stop right here. I'm just so happy she can finally show her work to the world!!!
Below are some of my favorite paintings for her recent work.
