Arielle Tesoriero is an artist who creates contemporary portraiture exploring women's conflicts with eating and sexuality. She uses a variety of medias, including painting, sculpture, photography, video, and collage. Food represents physical and emotional nourishment, objects of both dread and intense desire. Tesoriero examines individual expectations of self-esteem, morality, beauty, and pleasure through characters she draws from her imagination. The pink Julep and orange Sylvie (and friends) are in constant battles for power and identity.

Tesoriero is also a singer and songwriter. She has self released two EP's: Dear Diary and Kiss Kiss, Kill Kill! are streamed globally. Tesoriero combines both literary and visual elements unique to her creative intuition, delivering the chilling realities of relationships and mental health.
