About The Artist
* New work coming for Retold, our June 2019 exhibition! *
Alexis Kandra lives and works in New York City. Born in Pittsburgh PA, Alexis grew up with a passion for art-making and the natural world. She studied at Tyler School of Art, and was inspired by the behind the scenes workings of the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia. She began making paintings inspired by natural history dioramas, psychology, and the unseen elements of the universe that connect everything together.
