Aleksandra Savina was born and raised in Kiev, Ukraine where she graduated from the Department of Art at the Fine Art School and Teachers College. She worked extensively as a teacher and designer before moving to Canada in 2005. Aleksandra currently lives and works in Toronto.
Enthralled by the beautiful land and cityscapes of her new home, Aleksandra found a new source of inspiration to draw from. In her paintings, Aleksandra explores cubic forms by applying the paint in a structured and geometric fashion, balanced by splashes of warm, vibrant colour. Using a palette knife, Aleksandra brings her scenes to life by adorning the canvas with bright colours contrasted by deep grays.
