ALEXANDRA MAS VIEW BY...
"Alexandra Mas, cette jeune femme au regard perçant, peut très bien lire en vous comme dans un miroir. Face à l’une de ses œuvres, nous sommes tel Dorian Gray devant son reflet. Ce n’est pas par hasard : chacune des créations d’Alexandra Mas – que ce soit une toile, une pictographie, une installation, un objet d’art… – est le résultat de longues recherches basées non seulement sur sa propre expérience mais aussi et surtout sur la mémoire collective. "

"Artistic polyvalence was the norm during the renaissance epoch. We can still find this “touche à tout” beings, just like Alexandra Mas, multidisciplinary artist. Each of her artistic fields is handled with the same passion and mastery. She always dedicated herself to art, more precisely since she was 14. The artist works with all the mediums and means that she can master, etching, graphic design, painting, or photography…. In her works we can feel the Carpathian’s spirit, all mountain’s poetry, force and sensibility. To create is like breathing for Alexandra."
Jean DEULCEUX, lecturer & art critic

Best Photography for MAS TASSINI STUDIO
awarded for the art and creativity we bring in fashion photography, for the art direction.
"(...) Our relation continued and I was getting deeper into her protean work traveling towards figurative painting confines, lyrical abstraction, pictographs, art to wear. Alexandra Mas is constantly exploring new territories. (...) Valérie PENVEN art journalist
"Fine art photography is that area where talents capture something existing or just made and give to it a different life, a new meaning.The lecture is not descriptive but emotional. For Alexandra Mas photography is just drawing with light in a different time loop. A moment that in future will become yours, the viewer. The flickering of a soul that happened and keeps happening in multiple ways, in spectator’s eyes."
UFashOn about Alexandra Mas' collaborations in Fine Art Photography
" (...) this extraordinary artist, works tirelessly, giving herself completely in a inspiring but exhausting elopement, she does not care about her work’s purpose or aesthetical result because only the emotion matters: “sparks of emotions, scattered feelings that may or lay not give birth to an art piece…!” A.Mas
Hunted since years by this meditation, she gave birth to the art movement she is the founder of, the passionate and fascinating inciter, the rebel agitator never finishing to show the beauty of things in their most intimate truth: a beauty that may be, here relays art’s sublime paradox, be ugly because even in ugliness we can find beauty and grace, bothering, interpellant, superb, stunning, touching; Alexandra MAS creates the word “Magnifism”. “It finds its roots in the Latin word Magnus, meaning the big. Like a brother of magnificent without being from it.” She will say in her fundamental text:” Intuition must remain inexplicable, inborn, isolated from pragmatism: it is aesthetical experience’s autonomous engine. Lecture and creation, both result from the intuition, from this brutish sincerity, far away from dogmas. Art is a permanent road between our soul and our experience” A. Mas"

"Alexandra Mas has an eye for beauty and can transform any inspiration into a stunning piece of art.Her paintings of dancers display the same dream like quality found in her engravings. Her most amazing characteristic is the wide range of media she uses, and her clear prowess in every field; few artists can claim such accomplishment with such varietyTake a look at her art, and you might be inspired to get a little creative yourself, Alexandra is an inspirational woman – in her art- work, in her thoughts, and her approach to life. Her life as an artist has been an extraordinary journey so far, and she will surely continue with her success."
