Larissa Esvelt,

04/04/1998, Wageningen, NL



Larissa Esvelt is a beginning visual artist based in Arnhem and surrounding area. She graduated from ArtEZ university of the arts in Arnhem in 2020, getting her Bachelor’s degree in fine arts /BEAR.


Larissa’s works are often concerned with our relationship to those things deemed other, crossing into territories of both the real and the imagined. The work aims to lures you in, inviting you to come closer. Creating a sense of comfort within the uncomfortable, the viewer is left vulnerable. presented with a sense of playfulness, Larissa’s works tackles the things that makes us most uncertain, opening them up to be approached in a softer, more empathic way.

Her  Work consists mainly of sculpture and installation.
