Alexa Mosley was born in Texas, and raised in New Mexico. She moved to Colorado in 2021, to further her art career. She predominantly works in larger, detailed paintings and drawings, outlining the reality in the world through the lens of her own. Mosley’s media of expertise includes oil, acrylic, and watercolor paint, as well as charcoal and markers. She fabricates realistic and surrealistic portraits and landscapes stemming from her experiences. Her art career first began when she was an adolescent, drawing directly from life itself. She grew more passionate about turning her artistic voice into a career, and started to take more serious studio classes in highschool, practicing a variety of art techniques and skills. She is currently earning her Bachelor’s in Fine Arts at the University of Colorado Denver, as an Art Practice Major, concentrating in Painting & Drawing, and Illustration.
Mosley has also graduated on the Dean's List, with an Associate of Arts and Science degree at the New Mexico Junior College, Hobbs, New Mexico in 2020. Mosley’s participating BFA Thesis Exhibition at RedLine Contemporary Art Center involves a series of large paintings that advocate embracing and accepting one’s identity through hair. Her work, Spiralization will showcase her personal association with her curly hair, as it embodies and empowers her biracial identity.
In 2022, she participated in a variety of group collaborations and exhibitions including a show at Fifteen LTD, GC’s Underground Experience, and a booth at the Colorado Black Arts Festival in Denver, Colorado. In 2019, she won first place and achieved an honorable mention award at the Center for the Arts High School Exhibition in Hobbs, NM. In 2019-2020 she worked as a Production Artist at a local media production company, Ampersand Media and Design. Mosley plans to finish her Bachelor’s in Fine Arts at CU Denver, and continue producing her freelance work through galleries and online stores.
