Today we’d like to introduce you to Alexa Jade Loch.
Alexa Jade, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
As early as I can remember I’ve had a strong passion for art. From winning a t-shirt design contest as a kid to painting villainous characters in my freelance work, I can say I have developed my own style. In high school I picked up on many different mediums, aerosol paint being one of my favorites. I would say graffiti culture heavily influenced my artistic technique. After getting my diploma, I left home and pursued a career in tattooing. Seven months went by until I realized I needed more freedom in my work, so I left. Shortly after, I met up with the founder of “All Access Art Show,” where I showcased my artwork amongst like-minded individuals for the first time. It ended up being everything I was looking for and more. I like painting on my own terms, and I enjoy speaking with viewers about how my art makes them feel and conversing with artists who share the same passion as I do. On my free time, I like to eat good and surround myself with family and good people. I’m pretty laid back and down for whatever.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
My art ranges from dark creatures to celestial figures. I use a wide variety of acrylic and oil-based paint markers. I always try to incorporate some kind of metallic details so my work can be seen from far away. When I begin a painting, I think about things I haven’t drawn yet, and how I could add meaning to it. Most times in the beginning, there is no meaning. I just paint how I feel and what I see in my mind. Although my craft looks whole from afar, when you’re up close and personal, my attention to detail speaks for itself. I hope when people look at my art, it allows them to open their mind to a world where rules of reality don’t exist. I put a lot of time and thought into every canvas and I feel like every new piece I make has more than the last. When I paint, I want people to know that I always have my mind on the bigger picture, but I try not to forget the little things. Because after all, that’s what makes it the bigger picture.
How do you think about success, as an artist, and what do quality do you feel is most helpful?
I feel like as an artist, when you have people you don’t know interested in your work.. thats being on the road to success. But truly being successful is a lot of things to me. It’s finding happiness, it’s getting paid to do what you love. I say to be successful is to be original and persistent. If anything, extra persistent because there’s not only competition between artists but in the entertainment/social media realm as well.
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
People can find my work on Instagram @renosyet. I created the account about a year ago so it’s not everything, but you can definitely check it out and follow for updates on works in progress. I also like to set up gallery whenever I finish a series and I’m definitely working on a series, so I’ll be up soon.
