Alexandra Levasseur: dream-like feminine figures
Canadian artist Alexandra Levasseur lives and creates her narrative illustrations in Montreal. She received a Bachelor in Fine Arts and Graphic Design at the University of Costa Rica, and got her postgraduate studies in Creative Illustration and Visual Communication at EINA School of Art and Design, Barcelona, Spain, 2008.
The feminine figures represented in the illustrations, paintings and drawings of Alexandra reflect childhood memories and daily experiences in a dream-like space.
“In my work, I usually portray characters amidst landscapes that seems to be coming out of a dream. I’m very interested in how the physical comfort and the peace of mind (or lack thereof) are related, which leads me to create environments that are close to what I would consider a perfect place to be.”
Her works has been exhibited in museums and galleries such as: Mirus Gallery, San Francisco; Victoria and Albert Museum, London; Picasso Museum, Barcelona; the Barra de Ferro space, Barcelona. She is represented by Galerie ROCCIA in Montreal.
