AliCé aka Alice Pasquini is a female artist from Rome. She studied fine arts in cities in Europe and Australia. AliCé was working as an illustrator and set designer but was frustrated by working for clients to realize there ideas without having the possibility to express herself. That frustration and her relationship to the french street artist C215 made her become the amazing street artist she is today. Her first artwork on the streets was made in the year 2006 in Rome. Her works are showing humans, animals and their relationships to each other.
Because AliCé was annoyed from the fact that women are reduced to stereotypes and or sexual objects in the media, advertisement and even in the art scene, the most of her artworks are portraying closeups of strong and independent women which are the opposite of the stereotypes and showing a way more real and purer ecstatic and beauties. She said about her own street art, that she wants to make: “art about people and their relationships, I’m interested in representing human feelings and exploring different points of view. „I especially like to depict strong and independent women.”
Another important aspect that can be realized by observing her work is the colors she is using and where she is placing her artworks. AliCé is choosing the spots for her street art with talented eyes and is always including the background and the surrounding in her art by choosing her motives and paint. In almost every picture she is using the colors that are already present and a cold blue and salmon tone that is reminding her of her hometown Rom and an important inspiration for her.
Another feature about herself as an street artist is that she isn’t staying anonymous by showing her face and letting everybody know her real name. In an interview she said one time: „If you do something that is somehow politically or revolutionary you have to carry the responsibility for what you are doing, to show my name and my face, tells me and everyone else that i do nothing wrong, that I do something good for the city.“
