Jessica Alazraki Biography:
I was born and raised in Mexico City by Jewish parents. Studied in a Jewish private school and have a bachelor degree in Communication from Universidad Anáhuac. Photography was my passion, and I have always been driven by visuals. My Mom worked as an interior designer, and I inherited a good sense of space which always helped me with composition. My father had a printing company, since an early age I got a feel for two dimension pictures. I worked as a creative in advertising right after I finished high school and I have always been fascinated by creative ideas and challenged myself to break some rules and been excited by outside the box thinking in every creative field. I moved to NYC on March 31st, 1998 and had lived here since then. New York fascinates me, and I called it home immediately. I found work in various advertising agencies that target the US Hispanic market and had a strong understanding of their cultural differences and identified myself as a minority since. I have always been educating myself technically while working. I did a degree at Parsons School of Graphic Design since 2000 and took CE classes in various schools like SVA and Cooper Union. I quit my job after becoming a mother, but as a creative person, I always had the need to express myself visually. I discovered drawing and painting in 2004, and as much as parenting allowed it, I became more of a serious art student, working from life models and learning anatomical drawing and figure painting. I have been preparing myself for a self-directed body of work that represents my artistic interest, my personality and contributes to creating social awareness of a very important topic. I believe in diversity; I am proud of being Latina.
