Aleksandra Apocalisse was born in the USSR and fled to the United States with her family at the age of six. She spent most of her childhood and young adulthood in Brooklyn, New York, before moving to Oregon in 2015. Her personal journey has involved an assortment of adventures: studying the sensory systems of fish, working with sea lions, teaching science, teaching circus arts, and organic farming. She now works as a full-time artist in Portland, where she lives with her husband, their dog, two geckos, and fifty-one plants.
Her art explores themes of attachment, transformation, and wonder, and celebrates the universal, unique experience of every being.
All framed works in the Autzen Gallery are available for purchase. Additional prints and original paintings available at apocalisseart.com.
