About the Artist
Alexandra Nechita was born in Vaslui, Romania on August 27, 1985 and migrated to the United States as a toddler, at age two.
Nechita is a true artistic force, hailed as such from a very young age. She was the rarest of child prodigies – a master of line and color – an artist with a visual language of her own. You can see the unfolding of that visual language in the extraordinary new body of work in her new 2019 collection entitled: RE: IMAGINED.
Alexandra Nechita began dabbling in the arts with pen and ink at the age of two. She picked up watercolors at age five and began experimenting with oils and acrylics at age seven. By the time she turned eight, she was labeled a child prodigy and the media touted her as the “Petite Picasso.” She had her first solo exhibition at a library, while studying art at Lutheran High School of Orange County. Upon seeing Picasso’s work for the first time, Nechita remarked to her mother, “Mommy, he paints like me!.”
She traveled to the esteemed Mourlot Atelier in Paris at age ten, joining the likes of Matisse, Miro and Picasso, to work directly with lithography stones. Monsieur Mourlot stated “She will be a leader in art in the twenty-first century.”
Nechita came to national attention in early 1997, when she was chosen to design the 39th Annual Grammy AwardsProgram. She has been a repeated guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, has appeared with numerous celebrities, including Bill Clinton. In addition to talk show appearances. She played herself on the teen sitcom Boy Meets World in the 1998 episode “Better Than The Average Cory”. She routinely sold her paintings for $100,000 and more. At age ten, Nechita signed her first painting contract, a year that led to over 600 interviews. By 2016, at least one of her originals sold for $400,000.
Nechita graduated from UCLA in 2008 with a Fine Arts Degree.
In November 1999, Nechita was selected by the World Federation of United Nations Associations to lead a Global Arts Initiative involving more than 100 nations. In 2005, Alexandra Nechita unveiled her United Nations Peace Monument for Asia in Singapore. Her artwork has been sold and displayed at various locations in the world and her collectors include Ellen DeGeneres, Alec Baldwin, Oprah Winfrey, Melissa Etheridge, Lee Iacocca, Calvin Klein, Whoopi Goldberg, Little Richard and Paul Stanley of the rock group Kiss. The theatre at her high school, Lutheran High School of Orange County is named after her.
Among her many involvements, honors and achievements are: Carousel of Hope for juvenile diabetes; Blue Heron Foundation for Romanian orphans; Gold Key award from the Van Gogh Institute in France; Woman of the Year by the American Red Cross; Most Fascinating Woman of the Year 1999 by Ladies Home Journal with CBS; People’s 100 Most Interesting People. Nechita is also on the Board of Selectors of Jefferson Awards for Public Service.
Alexandra Nechita’s father was able to escape from communist Romania just 3 months before Alexandra was born. She and her mother were able to join him after she turned two. Her parents nurtured and supported her artistic talents leading to a very close family and financial relationship that continues today. Nechita married longtime friend and fashion designer Dimitri Tcharfas and they have a daughter.
