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. 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 Los Angeles, California.
