Aleksandra Savina was born and brought up in Kiev, Ukraine and graduated from the Fine Art School and Teachers College (Department of Art). She worked as an art teacher and designer. In 2005, Aleksandra came to Canada and currently resides in Toronto. She was mesmerized by the beautiful landscapes of her new country and home, and these landscapes have become her new source of inspiration. Through her paintings, Aleksandra has explored cubic forms. The technique she uses to apply her paint is very original. It consists of applying the paint in a very structured and geometric fashion. Her colour composition is rich, yet subdued, enabling the maturity of this contemporary artist to shine through. Canadian nature and urban scenes became the most important feature of Aleksandra's paintings, and European urban scenes. Her fall landscapes with vibrant reds, deep ultramarine blue, purple, lavender and rich browns are common characteristics for Aleksandra's paintings.
