Paintings with a Message

Alex Sandvoss is an artist from Vancouver, B.C.. Sandvoss received her BMus from McGill University in Montréal in jazz saxophone. While studying music, she began painting during her free time. Sandvoss moved back to B.C. and was inspired to amalgamate her painting skills with her connection to social issues. The Faces We Pass by Every Day was Sandvoss’s first exhibition and solo show in July 2018, and was met with great critical acclaim. Alex has received international media attention for her painting and activism and has had paintings installed at the Vancouver International Airport (YVR) since 2019.
