After seeing Alex Garant’s work for the first time, her unique surrealist style will remain engrained in your mind. It is hard to escape the sultry intensity that the characters embody – they present themselves with more than one set of eyes.

Alex is the sweetest tough-girl you’ll ever meet. Get to know her here before you meet her at the show!

 

 

 

 

 

What type of work do you create as an artist? (Mediums, styles…)

My oil paintings offer a graphic quality combined with traditional portrait techniques. I find inspiration in early ink printing, vintage pop surrealism, baroque tapestries, and retro kitsch.

What was the main thing that you had to go through to get you to where you are at now as an artist?

All the awkward phases between birth and the present.

What is the main thing that you try to achieve with your work?

I love to use patterns, duplication of elements, symmetry, and image superposition as a way to engage the viewer into my imagery. So art become less of a passive experience.

What does being ‘unbound as an artist’ mean to you?

Freedom, self- awareness, truths.

Life is short, smell the flowers, dance with strangers, tell your mother you love her, make art, be happy.
