After graduating from Pratt Institute with a BFA in painting, artist Alise Loebelsohn studied in France and at the Art Students League in NYC. During her time at Pratt, she worked at an organisation that created murals in hospitals and mental institutions in deep need of beautification. Alise ran the studio for two years, helping with colour decisions and also assisting others with technique and process. Eventually, Alise found herself perched on to of Times Square in New York, painting billboards while the world passed her below. Her current creative practice consists of layering the surface of her materials with Venetian plaster followed up sanding and burnishing to build up patina and shine before the colours are introduced.
