Noelle Deraco is an italian-argentine artist based in Barcelona, Spain, specializing in realistic drawings employing graphite, pastels and ink techniques.
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina on December 8th, 1995. At five years old, her family relocated to Barcelona where she has been residing ever since.
Her work is primarily focused on creating and giving light to people with unconventional features or characteristics that are usually outside of what is considered a canon of beauty as a reference. Exploring strong emotions such as rejection, marginalization, abandonment, exclusion, longing, grief and illness. She is displeased with the views imposed by society and colonialism to what is considered to be healthy, acceptable or beautiful.
She is also a firm believer that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
