Josh Alexander, more commonly known for his paintings of the figure, still life’s, and selfportraits, the artist has recently taken a new direction with his work in pursuit of finding truth through imagery. “I don’t set out to produce art about one subject or another. I’m never without a sketchbook so I am constantly drawing. Sometimes the drawings are left in the book and other times they develop into more indepth ideas. A few months ago, I found myself drawing visual representations of emotions. This led to an exploration of art in a deeper and more personal level,” says Alexander. Alexander studied figure drawing under John Thrasher at The Ohio State University where he earned a degree in Architecture in 2000. After moving to New York in 2002, he studied painting under Robert Neffson at The Art Students League of New York before joining Madarts where he works from his studio in Brooklyn.
