Alicia Suarez

Alicia Suarez was born in South Africa and her origins are quite apparent in the exquisitely detailed portraits of people and animals she creates. Her work combines graphite with African and coffee-based pigments, producing an elegant amalgamation of delicacy and strength. Suarez was educated and has exhibited widely in Spain (where she received a number of prestigious awards) and since 2004, in New York, Berlin. Johannesburg, Edinburgh, Barcelona, Brooklyn and Strasbourg.
