About

Autobiography - Lady Picasso

Marissa Porter who goes by the artist name of “Lady Picasso” is an African-American/ German 22 year old artist born in Los Angeles, California. She found her passion for art at the early age of 5. Growing up, Lady Picasso was  exposed to art in many ways. Her parents would regularly take her and her sister to art museums teaching them about historical artists and put her into art lessons outside of school. Lady Picasso participated in art drawing competitions and took  several art electives in school. Lady Picasso would always find herself drawing in her room after school, creating her own cartoon characters and adapting women superhero characters from movies and shows she was inspired by. The latter was the catalyst and inspiration that led to her art style now which can be described as cartoon, predominantly composed of women with a very strong sex appeal, huge heads, long necks, and overly small waists. Her inspiration and admiration comes from strong women roles of popular TV shows and movies such as PowerPuff Girls, Atlantis, Tinkerbell, Jessica Rabbit, and Betty Boo. Lady Picasso like’s her artwork to represent sass, dominance, independence, and but also softness and playfulness. Lady Picasso’s goal is to make the audience, particularly women, to feel empowered of their sensuality, femininity, and pride of being a woman in today’s society.

Lady Picasso has showcased her art work at Herstory, Block 8, Junior High, and over 10 other art exhibition through out Los Angeles, California. Lady Picasso has also been interviewed in a magazine article for Voyage LA, Arcane Angel Magazine, along with a Podcast called ART BISH that covers inspiring stories about young underground artists
