Alissa Van Atta is currently based in Chapel Hill, NC, and is a mixed-media painter and ceramist. Alissa is inspired by texture, nature, and unique surface treatments in her abstract artworks. In 2022, sparked by the overturning of Roe v. Wade, figures emerged in her paintings. Feminist themes are subtly explored with a neo-pop art style inspired by vintage advertising, pin-up girls, and commercial art from the 1950s – 1970s.
Alissa has participated in exhibitions and art fairs in the past few years to further expand her exposure across multiple markets. “The most rewarding part is meeting people that are attracted to my work and I get to connect to people over my pieces and the stories behind them.”
