Alexandra Spyratos was born in Kenya where she lived most of her life surrounded by the exotic beauty and wilderness of Africa. Based between Byron Bay, Australia and Malindi, Kenya, Alexandra has made two tranquil corners of the world her base, painting in her studios for exhibitions worldwide.
Influenced by her colorful background, translating the heat and the exotic beauty of the African wildlife to canvas has become Spyratos’ passion and spiritual goal. This prolific artist has become known for her colorful, bold and individual style. Her paintings rich and heavily layered with fluorescent paint and thick oils, recreate the physicality of the wild that inspires her.
