Alexandra Arata is an interior architect, designer, and artist, along with painter since her childhood growing up in Cordoba, Argentina. Arata holds a Masters in Interior Architecture and Design and BA and MBA from universities in Spain and Argentina. In 2002 Arata moved to Washington D.C. to continue her education and exhibition of work.
Arata's portfolio of work includes abstract paintings and multidimensional wall sculptures. “My artwork is like life; full of texture, asymmetries, and never perfect but always passionate, bold, and bright. This reflects the passage of time and beginning something new, encouraging feeling and connecting when viewing".
Her paintings are created on canvas with acrylic, oil, wax, and various materials that allow Arata to explore without feeling tied to a specific medium or technique. Reflection of life itself, full of light and shadows and rhythm and patterns are common themes throughout her works.
Arata’s architectural design background is exhibited in her planned and symmetric wall sculptures. Each piece is built with arranged objects and various mediums and materials, with wood the preferred natural choice. Assembling the installations are an intimate and meticulous process resulting in robust color and texture.
U.S. exhibitions and corporate and residential commissions include New York, Florida, and Washington D.C. Selected pieces are privately collected in Europe and South America including the Museo of the Americas. Arata's work can be viewed in the White House, International Monetary Fund, and other government buildings.
