Alexia Carr - painter & sculptor
Anglo-french, Alexia Carr was introduced to the world of Art by her english father from early childhood. Alexia Carr is autodidacte. She finds her visual inspiration in the operatic and musical world as well as in the equestrian world, two universes she feels like linking together.
Her fascination for movements, emotions, faces (she is particularly talented in portraits ) stands out in her figurative, colorful and powerful paintings, reflecting her imaginative personality.
From the age of twenty, she exhibits her work in Toulouse (France):
"During a whole opera saison, she slips in the wings of the Capitole Opera house, she sketches dozens of drawings to create a series of superb paintings."
(La Dépèche, Toulouse 1992).

She is commissioned to paint a mural for a restaurant in Lyon (Carnégie Hall - 450 X 133).
In Berlin, she makes a "happening" painting a canvas from the movie "Star Trek" for Paramount Pictures and creates a mural "Freedom, the forgotten Luxuary".
