Alexandra Aquilina (b. 1987) is a screen printer and multi media artist based between Malta and Berlin.

Intimate and irreverant, Alexandra’s work is about sharing her thoughts and experiences as a woman growing up on patriarchal Meditarranean island steeped in history, with her audience in a bold but personal manner. For her, the act of creation is a way to explore and process dichotomous aspects of this way of life, though the visual iconogrophy of spiritual and historic themes surrounding Maltese society. She takes these visuals a step further by merging and blending them and reinterpreting them through the use of modern and found materials.

Alexandra combines her printmaking background with photography, light and sculpture, using materials that range from resin to fabric and embroidery, perspex, wood and metal.
