Mardi de Veuve Alexis
Rain Forest

About

This painting from Mardi's series "Urbana" suggests and exotic environment communicated by a colorful palette and patterning. Heavy layering and texture with line, pattern and abstract shapes suggest activity and are complemented with reds, ocher, violet and pale pink. Framed and ready to hang. Mardi de Veuve Alexis is an abstract painter and artist born and raised in the San Francisco, California Bay Area. While she grew up in a family of artists, it wasn’t until after a temporary move to Alexandria, VA in the 1980s that she began seriously studying art and design. There she took classes at the Torpedo Factory Art Centre and in Washington D.C. at the Corcoran School of Art and George Washington University. Upon returning to California, she studied at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) at the School of Architecture and Interior Design. Mardi has been painting professionally for a more than a decade, experimenting with combinations of various media and textural effects, mixing charcoal, ink, pastel, acrylics and collage. Her current body of work is inspired by urbanism and street art incorporating contemporary modes of communication like graffiti in an urban environment. A frequent international traveller, her work is inspired by cultural diversity, her interpretation of the human condition and the global environment. Mardi’s paintings and drawings have been shown and collected throughout California, Texas, Stockholm, Sweden; Croatia; Belgrade, Serbia; and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Collage, mixed media, line and textural effects characterize Mardi’s current body of work on canvas, panel and paper that is largely focused on urbanism and aerial landscapes.
