ALEXANDRA NEIRA

"Dreams of the Big City"


Old buildings, fire escapes, railings, ornaments, windows, attics and memories attached to the elements of this forgotten architecture, are the inspiration to a series that intends to awaken the secrets of those walls, to transform emotions of the past into eternal images that invite the viewer to explore the mystery beyond what they see.

 

I found my artistic voice by combining personal photography and painting skills to express a sense of place, juxtaposed with mystery, which invites the viewer to be a participant rather than just a spectator. As a world wide traveler, my photographs and paintings bring home a slice of the places others may never experience, by introducing cultures and the mystery of far away lands...

Biography

Alexandra Neira born in Colombia, where her natural love for the art began. Over the years, having had the opportunity to travel through and live in other countries, she gained great knowledge and appreciation of other cultures and the architecture that surrounded her.  Drawn to and fascinated by the aesthetic and structural elements of architecture, along with her interest in photography, she began furthering her discoveries in mixed-media applications that are now the brand of her latest series “Dreams of the big city”.
