Arielle Tesoriero is a painter who creates contemporary portraiture exploring individual's conflicts with eating and sexuality. She uses a variety of medias, including photography, video, sculpture and collage. Food represents physical and emotional nourishment, objects of both dread and intense desire. Tesoriero examines individual expectations of happiness, self-esteem, morality, and beauty through scholarly research combined with her own poetic, bold narratives.
Tesoriero is also a singer and songwriter. Her EP Kiss Kiss, Kill Kill! was released in February 2021. Tesoriero combines both literary and visual elements unique to her creative intuition, delivering the chilling realities of relationships and mental health.
