Vanessa Prager - Elle Fanning.

Vanessa Prager

A rightfully confident young artist with a bright sense of humor, Vanessa Prager first hit the LA art scene in 2003 and has been steadily building a repertoire of drawings and paintings. A self-taught artist, Prager’s inherent talent for portraiture allows her to experiment with different mediums. While mostly working as a fine artist, at times Prager lends herself to commercial work, from designing window installations for American Rag in Los Angeles and WeSC stores across the country (where she is also a WeActivist brand ambassador) to illustrating short stories for Flaunt Magazine and painting Giovanni Ribisi’s portrait for Mean Magazine.

Raised in the Bohemian LA neighborhood of Los Feliz, Prager imbues a laid back sensibility with vivid color palettes or simple Bic ballpoint pen drawings drafted on vintage music sheets. Combined with her tendency for heightened drama and slightly offbeat situations, Prager’s work naturally draws in the audience and leaves them feeling eerily connected to her beautifully disquieting world.
