Alex took up painting in 2012 after a friend recommended he battled his low mood with painting, he has never undergone any formal artistic training but his natural talent for painting has taken his life in an unsuspected direction. Alex is driven to learn and develop his skill through experimentation and new techniques. His painting is heavily influenced by the Cornish coast where he lived. Since discovering his passion and talent for painting Alex has displayed with a number of galleries and fairs including a solo exhibition at GX Gallery, London in 2018.
Alex has always been drawn to the sea and finds its energy and waves compelling and relaxing. It is this feeling that he wishes to bring through in his paintings, hoping that the viewer feels the wonder and might of the sea.
