Japan, Vintage, Victorian

Graduated from Art Center College of Design with honors, Alex Gross is an amazing visual artist with compelling themes. His illustration style is heavily influenced by the Japanese culture during his first vacation to Japan. With an admiration of the Japanese culture, movie posters, medicine packaging and commercial art history, Alex was inspired to incorporate these imagery to his paintings. The featured collection of his work are mainly oil on large canvas, but he also creates smaller pieces through mixed media.

You could purchase a beautiful limited edition of The Art of Alex Gross through his website, a monograph released by Chronicle Books. He is currently working on his solo exhibition at Jonathan Levine Gallery opening on September 11, 2010, as well as working on his second book which contains all of his work from the last four years.
