Known for his figurative painting and drawing, Alex Gardner (b. 1987, Long Beach, CA) uses layers of watered-down acrylic to make evocative scenes of ink-black figures with porcelain-like surfaces. Gardner’s approach smooths over cultural signifiers, creating anonymous characters in which his audience can see themselves reflected. His faceless silhouettes represent the human experience, and his technique produces thoughtful tonal shifts, examining light, shadow and texture.

Alex holds a BFA from California State University in Long Beach, which he completed in 2011. He currently lives and works in Long Beach, CA. He has exhibited internationally in Copenhagen, Mexico City, Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York, with solo shows in Hong Kong, London and at the Long Beach Museum of Art (Oct 2021). He has work in many global collections including the Jumex Museum, ICA Miami and X Museum collections.
