Painting people has the power to capture the essence of the human experience in a way few other art forms can. Through color, brushstrokes, and composition, a skilled artist can delve deeply into what it means to be human, bring attention to social issues, promote empathy and understanding, and create a visually stunning work of art.

Join Mastrius Mentors Jessica and Christina to talk about their work painting people and get ANSWERS to your questions, like:

  • What are the main DIFFERENCES between portrait and figurative art?
  • What (or who) is the INSPIRATION for your portraits and figurative art? 
  • Is it more difficult to sell portraits and figurative art than other subjects? Why or why not?
  • How can I elevate my portraits and make them more appealing?
  • And, of course, BRING YOUR OWN QUESTIONS! Mastrius Mentors are here to help.

Meet Jessica Oliveras

Oil Master

In my works I consciously explore the privilege of being able to appreciate and document existence from a painter’s perspective.

Life is ephemeral by nature, starting with the fact that each person’s life is such an unlikely miracle that it is almost impossible.

What was the probability that my lineage remained intact since human existence and I was born? Almost none. And what was this same probability about the woman in my painting? Almost none neither.

Therefore, almost like within a state of dreaming or a vague memory, I depict the existence of the woman of my life in an attempt to represent the underrepresented and to visualize the invisible on a canvas that shall live forever.
