Alessa Esteban

Alessa Esteban is living and working in Mexico City, where she has her own label called "ArTwisted Projects". She studied visual art at the Fine Arts Academy „La Esmeralda“ in Mexico City
"I work in three art medias: Drawing, Painting and Photography. I'm very interested in Sigmund Freud's theories in Psychoanalysis. But my art work is deeply connected to my own childhood and my sisters. I have two younger sisters whom I have always felt very responsible for."
"I'm very interested in creating images that look sweet and beautiful at the first look, but when someone takes a second look into it, they unravel damaged and crooked meanings. This perverse side of the image contrasts with the sweetness of the line in the drawing. It looks like clean drawings, clean lines, representing scenes with girls. Soft colors in the atmosphere, with deep psychological content, showed in the girl's attitude."

Alessa Esteban had a very serious copycating issues with another artist Mariana Magdalena (featured below). If she is right or not...Well, judge for yourself. I personally like both artists.
