About the Artist
My name is Alexandra Romano, I am an artist living and working in Toronto, Canada. I work primarily with acrylics, however, I enjoy experimenting with oil paints, inks and spray paints to create unique, one-of-a-kind paintings. My passion is creating eye catching artworks which include bold colour schemes; vibrant abstracts that stand out as a focal point in any space; a conversation piece. I took interior design in school and enjoy applying colour theory principles into my works; using color psychology to enhance the viewers experience. Blue hues and "cool", analogous, colour schemes are often used to provide a calming feeling and in other works; bright, warm hues are used to inspire optimistic, joyful feelings.
I am an abstract artist, who delights in the freedom of abstraction and the ability to explore impressionism and expressionism. Works are frequently inspired by nature and incorporate texture, geometric elements and bold beautiful colours. I enjoy creating stylish one-of-a-kind, original artworks for fashionable homes and commercial sites. I recently traveled to London, England for 3 months (2017) and visited "Flat Space Art" gallery; a contemporary art gallery located in notting hill, that represents a large collection of my original works. I am also featured on online marketplaces "1stDibs" and "Artsy". I have over 250 paintings in my collection which continues to grow.. I love to create art and design beautiful pieces!
I rely on a natural, intuitive approach while creating my paintings.
I craftily use palette knives to create texture to give the piece an interesting depth. I delight in being present during the whole process as I observe each unique piece come to life, layer by layer.
