Welcome to Planet Roar where we celebrate the work of talented artists and promote their exceptional talent and art.
Alex's work is based on the human body, from the female nudes on skateboards to the women and monsters on his big canvas pieces which he renders with a classic touch of academicism. This reflects his admiration for the old masters like John Singer Sargent, Joaquin Sorolla and Anderns Zorn. He also touches local political themes that deal with corruption and the abuse of authority. He also works as a freelance CG illustrator.
