Nechita was born in Romania in 1985. She began drawing at the age
of two. At seven, Alexandra was painting with oils and acrylics,
and her first exhibit was a one-woman (child) show held at a Los
Angeles public library when she was just eight years old.
Alexandra's talent was instantly recognized as capacity crowds came
to see her amazing and often monumental paintings. After seeing
her art, the press labeled her "The Petite Picasso." She
attracted the attention of art critics and the media who began telling
the world about this rarest of child prodigies - an artist who had
mastered drawing and color, an artist who had created a visual language
of her own, in a unique, lyrical, figurative, abstract cubist manner,
an artist who had only recently turned nine years old.
