Polish artist Alexandra Wejchert studied architecture at Warsaw University and art at the Academy of Fine Arts, Warsaw. She lived in Italy and France before moving to Ireland in 1965. Wejchert’s large-scale sculptural works in innovative materials including coloured perspex, plexiglass and neon became emblematic of the new spirit of progress in 1970s Ireland. Wejchert received many major commissions from businesses and institutions including, Irish Life; the Bank of Ireland; University College Dublin, and Trinity College Dublin. She also exhibited extensively nationally and internationally.
