Artist Bio

Melissa Allegories was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, with ancestry in the Dominican Republic. In 2011, she completed her Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art from Florida Atlantic University, where she developed her distinctive artistic style while concentrating on drawing, painting, and printmaking. Melissa's artwork is a mixture of creative writing with allegorical representations. Her artistic style has been subconsciously influenced by and developed out of boundless ideas, drawn forth from American culture, universal themes, and an openness to foreign ideology. Her pieces are composed by combining figurative or representational imagery, varying line weight, and quality to imply space and movement using non-linear perspective, integrating overlapping imagery, and using organic and geometric shapes. She exercises a push-and-pull technique and focuses on ethical insights, patterns in nature, and harmony with all things.
