SPYRATOS, ALEXANDRA

Artwork

Country: Kenya   •   Medium: Mixed Media

Alexandra resides between her home town Malindi, Kenya, and Byron Bay on Australia’s east coast. With studios in both these exotic corners of the world, Alexandra paints for exhibitions internationally.

With 23 solo exhibitions, Alexandra has shown her work in New York, Miami, Milan, Melbourne, Sydney, Hong Kong, Switzerland, Spain and Kenya.

Inspired by her colourful African background, Alexandra mainly depicts the African wildlife and is known especially for her flamboyant oil paintings of zebras and elephants. Over the years she has developed an unusual contemporary decorative style- bold, textured and uniquely her own.

Her medium, though predominantly oil on canvas, now sees an inspired reach into mixed media, working with gold and silver leaf and fluorescent acrylic, creating a 3d effect under black light. This technique adds an excitingly new and energetic dimension to her art.

In addition to oil paintings Alexandra also extends her decorative style to produce large and beautiful murals, inspired by her passion for colour and her fun-loving nature. Her brush stroke has been left on many walls in Africa, Europe and the USA.
