Olivia Alexander is a multi-awarded visual artist, born in London now based in Australia.
She uses layers of specialized mixed media techniques to create abstract and expressionistic paintings and is inspired by color, texture and shapes in the earth and oceans, not just of Australia but of other countries she has traveled to.
Alexander works with a combination of ink, acrylic and very fluid water color pigments on canvas and paper. Layer upon layer of fluid pigment creates transparent depths, combined in mutual exchanges of forms and colors. Light and shadow are added creating further depth to the work, sharpening alternating formations.
Her work has gained global recognition with nine international awards including both pewter and bronze medal diplomas from the Paris society of Arts, Sciences and Letters, a silver medal diploma from the French International Academy of Merit and most recently in 2015, the Art Critics Award and the Rome Imperial International award from Italy.
Having worked with art for several decades, her paintings are owned by private collectors in many countries and she is represented by galleries and curators in Australia, Italy, Singapore, New York, Chicago and Paris.
