Mila Alexander is a Russian-born artist based in London whose thought-provoking portraits take inspiration from female beauty and sensuality, fashion, cinematography and literature. She began her career in the fashion industry working for top UK couture houses, and although she always felt that her true passion lay within the art world, her innate sense of style and eye for colour and texture infuse every piece she creates.
With the skill and dedication of a film director, Mila creates and controls her exquisite pieces from conception to completion. Once she has found her muse she personally designs and makes their outfits, choreographs the shoot, produces life drawings and starts work on the painting in her studio. As such, each piece offers a reflection of the artist, demonstrating a disciplined self-awareness manifested in her confidence in her own femininity and that of those who she portrays. Consequently, her work demonstrates purposeful self-awareness as Mila harnesses her own strength to produce stunning works that exude female empowerment.
