Alexandra Nechita – The Unicorn
As a child prodigy, Nechita had been dubbed “The Little Picasso” for her early paintings that were heavily influenced by Picasso’s Cubist style. As her career progressed, she adapted her instantly recognizable style to a number of mediums. She began sculpting in the early 2000’s using glass as a medium, and quickly branched out to other mediums including bronze and other metals.
The Unicorn is a beautiful example of her work in bronze. Nechita has said that the image of the unicorn speaks to the archetypes of fantasy and the unreal that are so familiar to us as children yet often lost on us as adults. She notes that she hopes that this image will “encourage the viewer to challenge their doubts and convert them into a shrine of youthful hopes.”

Alexandra Nechita Bio
The now 29-year-old Nechita was born in 1985 in Romania. She moved to California with her family in 1987, where she took up an immediate interest in drawing. Her parents nurtured this interest, and by the age of 8, she gave her first solo exhibition at a public library in Los Angeles County. That same year, 1994, she saw her first Picasso exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
In 1995, a CBS producer took notice of Nechita’s work at the Mary Paxon Gallery, which led to her appearance on CBS Sunday Morning. The rest, as they say, is history.
Nechita has collected a number of accolades over the course of her career. Among others, she was selected by the World Federation of United Nations Associations to lead a Global Arts Initiative involving more than 100 nations in 1999. In 2005, her United Nations Peace Monument for Asia was unveiled in Singapore.
