There are very few things I am guilty of, and being a fan of The Real Housewives of New York is definitely one of them. Over the years we’ve watched friendships form and fizzle, wealthy women’s wild nights, and surprisingly, the birth of a wonderful artist.
Victoria de Lesspes.
The New York artist started showing her art on the show when she was just barely a teenager, and as she got older, her talent blossomed. Now, at 20 years old, her talent is being recognized and praised in the art world, earning her a featured spot in Milk and Night’s feminism in art’ gallery at 2014’s Art Basel in Miami.
Victoria’s art is modern, moving, and very much guided by focus on the beauty of the female form. Through her work runs a decidedly feminist motif, celebrating women and their bodies in all their naked glory.
Victoria is currently studying at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, focusing on graphic design, fashion design, and animation. She also does freelance work as a graphic designer, working with BEX Lingerie.
Victoria has a great eye for line and how to effectively use negative space to make her work really stand out and speak to you. Being someone who frequents the fashion scene, the influence of design sketch is more than evident in her work.
I see great things ahead for the talented, young, up and comer, and encourage you to keep up with her work on her website.
