Full Name: Alexia Argent

How long have you been doing your art: My whole lyfe yo, but professionally 5 years!
What got you originally interested in the art you do: Life experiences, other humans, sensation, thought or lack there of. I don’t know! Honestly, it’s been my calling, my way of being and expressing since forever. There is no one answer to this question for me.
What is something you have learned about yourself through your art: Everything
What do you enjoy the most about your art: The process.

What is something most people don’t know about you: I’m an open book.
If you could teach everyone one art medium or method, what would it be, why: It would be the method of letting go. Everyone is overthinking everything all the time. Art, for me, is literally about letting go and not thinking. Letting the moment create itself.
