Alexander Shundi was born in Correggio, Italy in 1944 and lived in Parma, Italy until his family moved to the United States in 1957. He received his Bachelors and Master’s degrees from Yale University, graduating in 1969 with his Master of Fine Arts in Painting. He also received further education in Milan, Paris, and Connecticut. Alexander’s works are in many public and private collections in the United States and abroad. He lives and works in a converted 1850's church with his wife Elizabeth Hill, also a painter, and their two children. He has traveled for twenty years exploring the American Southwest, with particular focus on both ancient and current Pueblo culture, art, and mythology.
