Hi, I am Alex!

 

I am currently working and living as a freelance designer, illustrator and painter in Vienna/Austria. I have always been fond of two things: making marks on paper and understanding people. As I had to choose a path at some point I went for making marks on paper, studying landscape architecture, teacher for arts and crafts and finally becoming a professional graphic designer and illustrator.

 

It was during my training to become a designer, when I was taught how to paint by the amazing Wilhelm Drach and I fell in love with the process of bringing forms, colors and textures to canvas, producing abstract worlds to explore.

 

I am a lucky guy, having the opportunity to follow my passions and working on the things I love. I want to make the world a better and more beautiful place and to keep up the work I do sell my time and my artworks. So if you are interested in my work, please don’t hesitate to contact me for details!
