ALEXA MEADE


ABOUT

About

Alexa Meade is a mixed media artist best known for her portraits painted on the human body and set against painted backgrounds, that turn real life people into seemingly 2D works of art. She takes a classical concept -- trompe l'oeil, the art of making a two-dimensional representation look three-dimensional—and works in an opposite direction. Her aim is to do the opposite, to collapse depth and make her living models into flat pictures. The result is walking, talking optical illusions, 3D paintings that confuse how the eye processes objects in space.

In corporate settings her work can be customized to incorporate attendees, who have opportunities to photograph themselves within the artwork, and post them for colleagues and friends through social media outlets. Within the art world, Alexa's art has been exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery in London, The Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery in DC, Postmasters Gallery in NYC, and Galerie Ivo Kamm in Zurich, Galerie Ingo Seufert in Germany, and Galerie Edouard Mazel in Brussels. Alexa has delivered keynote speeches about her work at the Wired Conference, National Geographic, and TEDGlobal.  

Alexa's work is being written into art history textbooks around the world. She has given lectures at the California Institute of the Arts, UC-Berkeley, National Geographic London, WIRED, and the TED Global Conference. Her TED talk “Your Body is my Canvas,” has been viewed nearly 2 million times. Alexa has also painted portraits of many individuals of note, including triple Grammy Award winner Gotye. Her work has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, NPR, CNN, Today Show, Nippon TV, BBC, Guardian, and hundreds of other media outlets around the world.
