Jessica Oliveras

  • With a professional artist as a father and an art book director for a mother, Jessica grew up in a small town near Barcelona “surrounded by art, artists, and art critics”.

  •  Jessica is a visual artist, educated at the University of Girona in Spain, at the Middlesex University in London (in nursing and midwifery), and self-taught in painting.

  • She explores the balance of existence and non-existence through her art, blending abstraction with figurative elements to depict themes of chaos and change.

  • Jessica creates sumptuous oil portraits laced with a classical eroticism and emotional symbolism. She is undeniably influenced by the exotic and sensual subjects, with exaggerated emotionalism and drama being abundantly present within her works. 

  • She has taken part in numerous exhibitions and is a winner and finalist of many art contests, her paintings are often chosen to decorate book and magazine covers.
