My name is alex and I spent most of my day thinking about skateboarding. Skateboarding frames my every thought. It melts my brain. It has above all else given me the appetite to do the things I want to do.
I’ve always had an affinity to products of the internet. My paintings are an act of admiration for a genre of internet image that I simply adore. My first painting is an homage to a cursed image I’ve saved in maybe 5 different phones. Like filming a trick over and over, there is a desire to capture the best version of what I think I’m capable of. I want them to be small bright and funny. They’re meant to ask your gaze for a moment and be dismissed with a smile. Much like their internet dwelling counterparts.
