Alexandra JS is a Scandinavian artist based in Stockholm, Sweden. Her lyrical paintings are inspired by life and the feelings accompanying the life-long journey.
The paintings often form associations to clouds or seascapes. The artist herself describes her paintings as poetry, as all of her works are based on poetic texts or are retrospectively attributed to them. Her works reveal how emotions may appear if they were made visible.
Alexandra has researched and explored the soft painting technique for years to achieve the soft effects and blending. All the paintings were executed with acrylic paints, using only paintbrushes as tools. The artist has been collecting the inspirations since her youth, since she has been fascinated by the portrait and nature painting of the 18th century.
Alexandra was born in 1991 in Helsingborg, Sweden. For 10 years she has lived in Stockholm, where she graduated from the world-famous art academy Kungliga Konstfack.
Since then, she is an active artist and has already recorded in her portfolio several exhibitions in Scandinavia and in Germany.
My biggest source of inspiration is without a doubt life. Everything from how it feels to put your feet down on a warm wooden floor on a summer morning, to larger existential questions such as “What does life really mean?”
I often think about existential issues, societal structures, what driving forces exist in different people and why they think, feel and do as they do.
In short, people’s different life destinies inspire me.
After many years of mental illness, I strive to open up to sometimes difficult topics of conversation through my art. And that people feel less lonely in their emotions by talking about how they experience the world and life.
