Arriving at art college in 1980, Alexander was very much a child of his time. His formative visual inspiration came from the ground-breaking graphic styles of the original punk movement, which he continues to pay homage to today with flashes of fluorescent colour combined with his signature greys and blacks. Recent paintings use reconnaissance photographs taken by his father from a Spitfire in WW2 as a starting point. The paintings have an initial impact and enormous vitality that reveals depth as you spend more time with the work.
Most recently working with the Modern ArtBuyer agency, Alexander had a successful solo show at The Four Seasons Hotel in Canary Wharf in 2012. Since then his work has been increasingly in demand after a sell-out show in the Brighton Festival Artists’ Open Houses in 2013 and the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea, London 2013.
