Alexandra Nechita – Art Prodigy

She was born in Vaslui, three months after her father, Niki Nechita, escaped from Communist Romania. She and her mother, Viorica Nechita, waited two years to rejoin him in the United States. The family settled in California, where her father found work as a lab technician, and her mother as an office manager.

At the age of two, she was working with pen and ink and by five was working with watercolors. Upon her seventh birthday, oil and acrylics were her tools. She had her first solo exhibition at the age of eight at the public library in Whittier, Los Angeles County.

She has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show and has appeared with numerous celebrities, including Bill Clinton. Her talent led to her being known as the „Petite Picasso” as her work, to some, resembles that of the master; she has been known as a child prodigy until late in her teens.

In November of 1999, Alexandra was selected by the World Federation of United Nations Associations to lead a Global Arts Initiative involving more than 100 nations. In 2005, Alexandra Nechita unveiled her United Nations Peace Monument for Asia in Singapore. It is to be set up for display at the Catholic High School.

She dedicated a theatre at the Lutheran High School of Orange County, which was her high school. It is known as the Nechita Center for the Arts, and has 740 seats.
