Amber Vittoria is an illustrator living and working in New York City. Her pieces focus on femininity and the female form, leveraging physical traits such as body hair, overtly extended limbs, and rounded features.
Her work has been recognized by Print Magazine‘s 2017 New Visual Artists – 15 Under 30, It’s Nice That, Computer Arts, HuffPost, Teen Vogue, Man Repeller, 20×200, and she is a 2017 Young Guns 15 winner.
My work is rooted in femininity and the female form. Through rounded blocks of color and thick, hairy strokes, it works to break the societal expectation and assumption on women in both the physical and emotional realm.
Leveraging social, specifically Instagram, enables me to share my work with women I may never have the chance of meeting in person.
If the work has the ability to resonate with me after completed.
Mens’ hesitations towards my honest depiction of women tend to lean towards the negative, but taking said feedback to open a dialogue about how women have been held to a specific trope societally/ how said trope must be broken, changes the feedback to become a learning opportunity.
