Bio

Alejandra is a Venezuelan-Spanish contemporary painter, who has been developing her artist’s skills since she was 15 years old. She studied Graphic Design and Art and she graduated with class honors from the Miguel Neumann Design Institute in Venezuela. She has participated in several solo and group exhibitions in Spain, Norway, Venezuela, England and Australia.

 

Alejandra is more than a talented artist. She is well known for her ability to magically combine different art styles and media into works of fine art of exquisite beauty. All her artwork is an exploration of consciousness and mental processes. Each work demonstrates a different operation of the mind.

Alejandra’s work stands out due to three essential features: Color, Spirituality and Symbolism. All of them created with the purpose to invite the spectator to recognize themselves in the images and be open to the possibility of moving beyond resisting discomfort to a place of surrender.

 

Alejandra is currently residing in Sydney. After one year since she arrived from Norway with her family, she was selected as a finalist in the Contemporary Art Prize 2017. She was also selected to exhibit her work at the collective exhibition Artists of Mosman 2088 at the Mosman Art Gallery this year.

Her work is in private collections in Spain, Venezuela, Argentina, Norway, Australia, U.S.A. and England.
