Alicia Dubnyckyj is a fine artist who paints contemporary cityscapes. Her work has been exhibited extensively throughout the UK, America, France, Canada and Holland, and she is held in many private collections all over the world. She was born in 1979 in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire and studied at the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, UCE, graduating in 2001.
She employs a jigsaw-like technique to create flat forms in rich gloss paint on board to suggest a modern global aesthetic, while photography and various digital processes are used to gather the raw materials prior to painting. Her complex detailing of the semiotics of the city with its iconic buildings and city structures, enable the artist to develop a new formal language of expression that represents her personal relationship towards the metropolis. Alicia reveals the true essence of place and demonstrates that the facade of glossy high rise living cannot eliminate the unique quality that each city holds.
