Mila Alexander art takes inspiration from female beauty and sensuality, as well as fashion, cinematography and literature. The Russian-born, London-based artist started her career working for couture fashion houses, and her sense of style carries through to her art.
Her work has attracted international collectors, with Spanish actor Antonio Banderas numbering among her fans. For those looking to buy Mila Alexander art for themselves, Maddox Gallery is pleased to represent the artist’s work in our galleries across central London, Gstaad and LA.
Mila Alexander is best known for her photorealistic vignette-edged portraits. While she primarily works in oils, she also likes to explore various different techniques and media. Using mood boards to carefully plan her concepts, months of preparation can take place before she first places paintbrush on canvas.
She also takes time to select the female subjects, who are often performers of some kind. Several of her portraits have featured Scandinavian model Sylvia Flote, recognised for her fragile yet sensual presence.
As an artistic genre, portraiture has its roots in tradition, status and wealth. Few could afford to commission art to control their self-image and ensure they were remembered. Building on this theme, Mila Alexander artworks champion women and the subjects’ ownership of their own image.
‘Butterfly Kisses’, ‘Hear My Roar’ and ‘On the Dark Side’ are impressive life-size portraits, highlighting multiple aspects of a single subject. Alexander is keen for her audience to connect with the subject, and the simple titles leave viewers free to interpret their meaning.
Alexander uses the black eye mask with Playboy bunny ears to reclaim iconography made famous by Hugh Hefner, and often appropriated by artists to communicate sexuality and power. Each work demonstrates feminine power, self-awareness and the multi-faceted personalities of her muses.
