A Mix Between Nature, Fantasy, Beauty and Pain in Beautiful Artworks of Alanna Vanacore

Alanna Vanacore is an American artist born in the small beach town of Ormond Beach, Florida. At a young age, her passion for art flourished while watching her mother paint.

It was in these moments that she developed an eye for detail and color. Alanna went on to study drawing and painting, earning her Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from The University of North Florida. Shortly after graduating, she decided to move to New York City to pursue a career in art. Her paintings, from the more realistic to the nearly abstract, showcase Alanna’s ever-growing range as an artist. Much of Alanna’s work invites playful humor into the everyday. She is currently living and working in Brooklyn, New York.

Frome the artist’s statement: “Simply put: I like to paint. To challenge myself but mostly because I’m so drawn to the process that I feel compelled to keep doing it. There are two sides to me creating art. One of them is really quiet. I think of my brain as a telephone wire. Endless conversations and connections going through but all I can hear is the quiet hum of electricity and the creaking noises in my neck when it gets tense and tired. The other side is me being a complete spaz. I dance, sing, crack jokes, talk in weird voices and listen to music really loud. I enjoy exercising the weird, silliness of life into my art. I paint what I feel or whatever is happening around me. Sometimes my thoughts are like mashed potatoes being shoved through a window screen, but other times they are hand delivered in a pretty package with a bow on top. My art is a documentation of my life and growth as a human.”
