Stiliana Alexieva is a British- Bulgarian artist and was tutored from an early age by her father Jordan Alexiev, an accomplished figurative artist, sculptor and actor. She studied printmaking, photography and visual arts in Sofia followed by a Masters in Media at The University of West London. Her MFA in Fine Art studies concluded at the Goldsmiths, University of London. Quantum exhibited her work for the first time at the London Art Fair in Islington in 2010; since then we have taken her work to New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Toronto, Hong Kong and Singapore. Her work was selected for the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy in 2013 and 2019. Stiliana says of her work: My seascape series are inspired by the many changeable moods of the British and Scottish weather. It stirs my imagination with its drama, peace and serenity. I paint on raw sheets of aluminium. Through self-developed artistic techniques I incorporate the paint with the reflective surface. The different lights of the day are performed onto the metal, creating a play of foreground and background effects, and ever changing scenery. She also says that the experience of living through the fall of communism left her free of convention; this is perhaps manifest in her style of painting highly textured mixed media on aluminium panels.
