Art Bio

 Alicia has had an interest in the arts since her childhood, in the ‘Trash Room’ at the Chicago Children’s Museum is one of the earliest places Alicia was initiated into the practice of art making. Much of the diversity in Alicia’s present artwork is from influences as a child. Born to one African American, and one Jewish parent – exposure to the world, her themes of nature and the cosmos, and other influences can be traced directly back to a wealth of childhood experiences. By 17, she was already in tune with her creative intuition, erecting a magnitude of work stretching beyond kid-friendly debris of the Children’s Museum. She was a participant in Gallery 37 a Youth Arts program for over five years, and was involved in a number of arts and science programs for gifted students.  Alicia received her B.A. from Rutgers University for studies in both Anthropology and Fine Arts with a focus on painting. After graduating Alicia relocated to New York City to pursue a career as a professional artist. In her first year out of college Alicia started the business Designs by Alicia P which began with selling her own: hand-painted clothing & paintings but eventually grew to be an entire line of Jewelry designs each one hand made and based on her interests in anthropology, and with a roots in sculptural work.

Over the ten years that Alicia has run her own business, she has honed and perfected her unique style of art using suede leather, found objects, and other mixed media to create jewelry, wall hangings and now large format sculptures. Alicia has participated in a countless number of exhibitions including juried shows in New York and Chicago, as well as an invitational exhibition in London. In 2013 she was recognized by several arts funding organizations, and her work has been featured in major studio films, television programs, print, & digital media outlets.

Currently, Alicia is expanding her signature aesthetic now focusing on combining her creative modalities into one multi-sensory experience in the form of sculpture and installation work. In 2015, Alicia is excited to have been invited to travel to India to participate in the Art Castle International Art Residency. Alicia continues to exhibit her work regularly as well as designing custom work for private clients.

Real NYC Designer Market will be the first to admit, it was love at first display/set-up/showcase with Us and Private Opening.  THE GIG WAS UP!!!! We had heard about how smart, attractive, worldly & debonair Stephen Fellerman was (which he is + an enormous amount of talent)- but after the display of Private Opening was up at Real NYC Designer Market  we all had fallen in love….all over again.  It’s easy to do this with this duo team – Madina Arkayeva and Fellerman.  A simply delicious duo, talented beyond you can imagine, stories in their lives displayed in their work and through the lens with their innovative photography, capturing each curve and luster of each piece. Vividly disclosing us the aesthetic, hues and silhouettes and the life each piece en tales – it’s created with firm yet soft touch – each fashion-forward piece will make you feel chic, sexy and ready for any adventure.
