Alexis Abrams, a California based artist, makes contemporary, painted, one-of-a-kind and limited-edition clothing. Each piece is designed, painted and sewn by her in her Los Angeles studio. She studied at New York University, Massachusetts College of Art, the Worcester Craft Center, and received her B.A. degree in Art History from Clark University. Her work has been included in numerous exhibitions around the country, and was featured in The Fiberarts Book of Wearable Art by Katherine Aimone. Her art is influenced by the abstracted forms of Pre-Columbian art, the pared down aesthetic of Modernist art and architecture, and the elegant simplicity of Japanese art and design.
“Living in Los Angeles, I have been exposed to a rich design history of Modernist art and architecture, as well as many exhibitions of Latin American and Pre-Columbian art and Japanese art and design. All of these have contributed to my design aesthetic and continue to inspire me.”
