Larissa Esvelt,

1998, Wageningen, NL



Larissa Esvelt is a beginning visual artist based in Arnhem and The Hague. She graduated from ArtEZ university of the arts in Arnhem in 2020, getting her Bachelor’s degree in fine arts /BEAR. She currently does the Masters artistic research at the KABK.


Larissa’s works are often concerned with our relationship to those things deemed other, and in a space of in-betweens, the fantastical, the realistic and perceived join hands in a chaotic union. The work aims to lure you in, inviting you to come closer. Creating a sense of comfort within the uncomfortable, she tries to approach her subject matter in a softer, more empathic way.
