Alexandria is a conceptual artist and painter who explores the concepts of Freedom, Nation, Information and Identity in modern day America through use of portraiture and symbolism. Born Alexandria Lee Bevilacqua in La Jolla, California, Alexandria has channeled her creative energy and ideas through the visual arts and performing arts growing up in Las Vegas since the age of eight. She attended UNLV’s architecture school and was assistant to Las Vegas architect and conceptual designer Stephen H. Jackson. Soon she found her focus and passion lay more in drawing and painting and Alexandria made the switch to majoring in Fine Arts to focus on developing this talent. After her third year in art school, she received one of the most prestigious awards for local artists, winning First Place in the Contemporary Arts Collective’s Annual Juried Exhibition in 2009 for her painting “Concentration”. The show was judged by Shana Nys Dambrot, an art critic, curator and author based in LA whose writing has appeared in Modern Painters, ARTnews, TimeOut, Juxtapoz,and many others. Dambrot described Alexandria’s winning painting, saying that ” This is an absolutely arresting, complex, intelligent, modern, fresh, innovative, obsessive, well- executed, unforgettable piece of art.” She has exhibited her paintings in several galleries throughout the Los Angeles area and in Las Vegas. Recent exhibitions include group show “Consumptive” at Garboushian Gallery in Beverly Hills with other esteemed artists such as David Lachapelle, York Chang, and Austin Young.
