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 in Mexico City. 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 in 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 discover 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. After my first year studies at the master degree level on figurative painting at the New York Academy of Art, 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.
