Alena Carvalho Videos
Alena loves photography and painting equally - stating that, for her, the two are inseparable - draws her inspiration from walks in European cities, particularly London, come rain or shine.
Using a mix of acrylic paints and inks, Alena uses a variety of both conventional and unconventional tools to express different ideas - enjoying the process of taking mundane urban elements and capturing their beauty in vibrant and atmospheric compositions.
She says that she loves depicting city scenes - combining iconic architecture with the life that goes on around them and the ever changing light and weather.
