Alexandra Roussopoulos is a Swiss/Greek artist born in Paris. She studied at the Camberwell College of Art in London and the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Interested in the issue of transmission, shared experience and engagement, she teaches in the Prép’art preparation school and participates in many workshops in France and abroad. In her paintings, she questions the dialogue between shapes, colours and space. Since the beginning, her work has been bearing witness to the importance of relationships with other people. She collaborates regularly to art projects and takes part in many artists residencies in China, Greece, Ireland, Slovenia and Algeria.
A powerful interaction between shapes and colours is at play in her essentially abstract pieces, painted with a wide brush, expressing both structure and spontaneity.
PINTON was immediately seduced by Alexandra Roussopoulos’s paintings, with one idea in mind: laying her art on the floor. The family business and the artist collaborated on a first collection of rugs, woven with a mix of materials and displaying Alexandra Roussopoulos’s trademark beautiful textures, colours and shapes.
