Alexa Meade X Ariana Grande Collaboration Out Now
Alexa Meade’s inspirational collaboration with Ariana Grande for the music video “God is a Woman” has finally been revealed. In Ariana Grande’s video #GIAW, the latest single off her upcoming album “Sweetener”, director Dave Meyers (known for his work with Kendrick Lamar and SZA) was assisted on set by artist Alexa Meade.
Alexa Meade’s vision was to have Ariana Grande swim in a sea of pastel colors. Alexa was inspired by previous work she’s done with Sheila Vand. The colors of purple and the simplistic, yet detailed work put into this music video has not gone unrecognized by the public.
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 millions of times. She worked with space-time researchers at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics and has also painted portraits of many individuals of note, including triple Grammy Award winner Gotye. Alexa’s 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.
