Maria Alekseev | OpticVoid
Born and raised in New York City, Maria Alekseev (OpticVoid) is a practicing fine artist and professional arts educator. She draws her inspiration from a collection of interests ranging from historical and cultural traditions, high fashion, NYC street style and attitude, biological forms and hybridization to hypnagogic hallucinations, horror, and all things offensively beautiful. Her mediums are painting, drawing, intaglio printmaking and most recently has begun creating short art films with her newly formed artist collective The Dark Circus X.
