Art Against Injustice

Alexandra Alvarez at Absynthe Gallery

Alexandra Alvarez Medina believes that art should be more than just a decoration for the walls, and it should serve as a means of conveying messages that need to be heard. As a Venezuelan artist based in New York, her art journey has not come without obstacles. However, these hurdles have inspired her work and have driven her to create her own opportunities.

Using art as a form of therapy, Alexandra uses biographical themes in her art to gain a better understanding of herself. During her healing journey, she produced a series of pieces which inspired her interest in psychology and philosophy. Themes of understanding the mind and human nature have further been integrated into her works.
