Alexandra Nechita

nechita lithograph framed on wallAlexandra Nechita began drawing at the age of two. At seven, Alexandra was painting with oils and acrylics, and her first exhibit was a one-woman (child) show held at a Los Angeles public library when she was just eight years old.

Alexandra’s talent was instantly recognized as capacity crowds came to see her amazing and often monumental paintings. After seeing her art, the press labeled her “The Petite Picasso.” She attracted the attention of art critics and the media who began telling the world about this rarest of child prodigies – an artist who had mastered drawing and color, an artist who had created a visual language of her own, in a unique, lyrical, figurative, abstract cubist manner, an artist who had only recently turned nine years old.
