Member of the Month – Kamloops Arts Council
Full Name: Alexia Argent
Medium: Mixed Media
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 your favorite joke/quote: Act like the person you wish to be and soon you will become the person you act as.
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.
What do you think makes art important: Perspective.
Why are you a member of the Kamloops Arts Council: Because I was told about it and thought “oooh! Why not!”
What are you looking forward to the most in this upcoming year: Painting my bus!!!! My dream of living in a tiny mobile home has finally come true. She will be a living moving piece of art!!! So excited!!
