Alex Brown was born in Manchester England. He did his Fine Art Foundation in Manchester and his degree at Camberwell School of Art, London. After graduating from University, Alex turned professional and exhibited with the Nine Elms Group of Artists throughout the 90's, where he was in galleries in and around London. Now, he has work housed in collections around the UK and abroad, which include: London Transport Museum, Art for Hospitals, St James' Estate Trust, Glaxo SmithKline, John Moores University. Alex also has pieces in private collections and galleries around the world.
After a successful career in London, Alex found that expectations were holding his development back, and so decided to take a break from the public eye. He used this time to develop and evolve his ideas and methods, whilst also building various successful creative businesses.
In 2018, Alex decided to reappear in the professional art world as he feels happier with his philosophy and technical skills.
His enduring fascination throughout his career has been painting from life, with colour relationship, light and abstraction. Inspired by nature and natural events, he's spent a lot of time trying to capture this in his work. "I have developed an organic approach to composition and narrative which has recently fed into my paintings." - Alex Brown, 2019.
Alex Brown | Abstract
'If you were to try to draw the outline of a splash, it would be impossible and take hours or days. Yet, it happens in an instant. It is created by the movement of a liquid body, violent contact with a solid surface, gravity and chaos theory. The structure that gives it form is the universe that we live in, yet we might walk past a splash of paint on the floor and call it a mess or accident. What we see as disorder or chaos, is a structured pattern at such a huge scale that we don't yet recognise its order.
The presentation of these artworks is in the style of Abstract Art, in order to raise its veiwing potential. It also hopefully questions your perception and preconceptions'- Alex Brown, 2018.
