Make Up Artist:
In awe of the beauty of our multicultural society, Ameana Alessandri has created a series of art pieces champion diversity and celebrate culture and identity.
The portraits are inspired by the many cultures within our society; each work with a model from a specific culture and a textile print in background from another culture.
She has an ongoing themes of reflection of the model to represent how one perceived oneself is different from how others see them, hence why each reflection is slightly different.
Ameana is a self- taught British artist of Kashmiri descent . She was encouraged by her family to pursue a more conventional academic path and is currently working as a junior doctor. After the loss of her father, She has used painting as a form of escapism. She quickly realised painting gave her a voice which she did not realise she had. She strives to capture the essence of a situation and look beyond its distractions. Her work aims to start conversations.
"Painting allows me a freedom of a kind which I never had, my artwork has given me a voice which I had not really used before. My work allows me to process and recycle old ideas with current events. I aim to look beyond the distractions and capture the essence of a situation"
