Alexandra Motiu

PRINTMAKER PROFILE

ARTIST STATEMENT

I am Alexandra Motiu and I make art under the pseudonym Moatzart, as a printmaker and illustrator. I have a lot of experience working in the arts and culture sector, with a focus on marketing, sales and event management.

My work has pop art and surrealist art humour with an old masters’ feel. My background is painting and printmaking. I am influenced by Dadaism and Surrealism, and my work is revelatory of internal struggles through disturbing imagery, as the grotesque and carnivalesque is endlessly fascinating. I aim to make hauntingly beautiful work that will stay with the viewer for a long time. I love stories, myth and folklore, and a lot of my work is very illustrative.

I make limited edition linocut and wood engraving prints, as well as drypoint etchings and monotypes using a printing press. I also have an array of different products such as T shirts with some of my funkiest designs, totebags, notebooks, bookmarks, stickers and more.
