The art of Alexandra Pacula

I have rediscovered a LOT of painter’s work and websites that I have saved or bookmarked over the past 3 – 4 years. So over the coming weeks I’ll be bombarding this blog with some cool stuff.

First up is the painter Alexandra Pacula whose work is absolutely incredible.

Think : being drunk in a car being driven through a city, yet being able to recall it through an oil painting.

In her artist statement she says her work “investigates a world of visual intoxication; it captures moments of enchantment, which are associated with urban nightlife”.

It almost makes you feel inebriated just looking at it.

Its as if you’re scrolling through photographs of a night out that you can barely remember taking.

You can see more of her work, including some amazing drawings, here on her website.
