“Life is an art, and art is an essential part of life. » Jessica de Vreeze
Jessica de Vreeze, is a French-American Visual artist, born in Paris, who always spent her time between the two continents. “Traveling is her middle name. She considers the power of photography as gift to create and share with those who can’t see, give a voice to those in need and preserve memory.” As she likes to mainly use photography, she does not hesitate to resort to other techniques such as painting (spray or brush), ephemeral installations and flashmob. She immerses the viewer in an urban universe. The artist's works reflect the soul of the places she encountered through her multicultural background. She captures unexpected details; her eye identifies the elements and objects that inhabit the streets “Human and places endlessly reflect one another” This is the message that Jessica de Vreeze conveys through her works.
