Alexa travels the world creating art installations and commissioned portraits.

Meade has painted the Perimeter physicists from head to toe – clothing, hair and all – with shades of black and grey. The muted colours and smudges almost perfectly match the threedimensional chalkboard that surrounds them: a half cube with two walls and a floor, chalked in calculations over the past week by Perimeter scientists. With a chameleon-like transition, her subjects become part of a living diorama.
By painting her subjects “into” their mathematical environment, Meade has created a startling, perception-bending illusion. Her living, breathing, blinking subjects seem to flatten from threedimensional people into two-dimensional portraits.

"I love artwork that totally plays with your sense of dimensionality and perception," says Meade, who has exhibited work in galleries around the world.

Above: (April 2016) Alexa Meade helped in transforming a surprise marriage proposal into an incredible two-dimensional, moving portrait - all captured on video. The touching moment and work of art came together after Dan Levine asked his friend and artist Alexa Meade to help him pop the question to his girlfriend of nearly seven years last week. He convinced his girlfriend, Cristina Cordova, to do a photo shoot "for fun" with him and the artist, only telling Meade and her assistant he was planning to propose (The Huffington Post).
Artist Alexa Meade’s technique involves painting directly onto the physical subjects that she is referencing, rather than using a canvas. Once the paintings are complete, she then photographs both the subject she had painted onto and the background.
