Make Your Friends Celebrities 001: Alex Breaux


Alexandra Breaux is an artist based in Miami, FL. She received her Bachelor's in art with a minor in Art History from Florida International University in the fall of 2020. She is currently an MFA student in painting at Florida International University. Alexandra was born in New Orleans, LA, in 1998. In 2005, the destruction of Hurricane Katrina forced her and her family to relocate. Growing up, she found a way to channel the life experiences she had gone through at such a young age through art. Oil painting was a medium that allowed her to slow down and reflect. Alexandra utilizes old and current family photos to translate her connection between her childhood and New Orleans. Using colors and paint fluidity has become part of her identity, which is found in her artistic practice today.
