Background

Rai Alexandra was born in Caracas, Venezuela. A vagabond by nature, she has lived and worked in Los Angeles, New York, Italy, Germany, Czech Republic and India, absorbing life experiences and cultures all along the way. Rai was a working model and actress before pouring her passions into the visual arts. Her art reflects her wanderlust: Boldly colorful, multi-layered, emotive and textured.

Moved by the groundbreaking experimentation of the great Abstract Expressionists of the mid-Twentieth Century, Rai’s quest to go beyond painting’s traditional materials pushed her to explore colored paper’s possible transformation into “paint”, using a hybrid technique of hand-torn collage and assemblage.

Rai currently lives in New York City, where she works on site-specific commissions for corporate clients, designers and personal collectors.
