Alexa Meade, this is the name of the artist creator of this magnificent work entitled ‘Living Paintings’. Thanks to the Internet the girl, with only 23 years old, has seen her art is attracting the attention of the experts and the enthusiasts around the world and has opened the door of the Postmasters Gallery in New York, which her work is currently exposed to 8 May, or the Saatchi in London, where it can be seen from next October.
American artist plays with the audience in each of her works of ‘Living Paintings’, which restates her art not as a representation but as a integration of the reality in the work.
At first glance, the viewer can believe that it is a simple portrait, but as it examines the work, understand that is faced with a real person, an optical illusion that confuses their spatial vision. Even, from time to time, the static characters come to life and are mixed among the visitors, in a confusing materiality.
Alexa uses acrylic paint on the three-dimensional surface of the objects, the people, and the architectural spaces.
At the moment the trajectory of this artist is short, but the responsible of Saatchi and of Postmasters are convinced that Meade will become a milestone in the history of portraiture.
Don’t miss the opportunity to see the work of this young American.
