Today we would like to introduce you to Alexia Tonna, a French artist specialising in mixed media and beeswax based paint. Her stunning art has been widely exhibited in galleries all over France and in Belgium.
After having experimented with water colour, oil and acrylic, she was electrified when she was introduced to the beauty of beeswax based encaustic paint. It was to define her body of work ever since. It was not only the history and versatility of this extraordinary medium that enthralled her, but also the longevity and never fading vibrance of ancient artworks produced with beeswax based paint.
She has now joined the ever growing artist community using Cuní Colours, which (in her own words) ‘add the texture she was missing’ in her mixed media pieces and ‘is very pleasant and easy to use’. She shared with us her most recent piece titled ‘The Hug’, which she created using Cuní Colours. Not only do we think that it’s an absolutely stunning piece, it also is such a poignant theme in our very tricky times. We salute her for creating something this stunning and sensual.
Alexia is a member of La Fondation Taylor (https://www.taylor.fr/) and a keen supporter of the GAEG, the Association for the Protection of the Domestic Bee based in Southern France in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region (https://gaeg.fr/).
