Studio Sessions: Alex Kvares


In this episode of Studio Sessions I talk with Brooklyn artist Alex Kvares about his variety of drawings that often border on becoming psychedelic.

Alex earned a BFA in painting from the University of Kansas, and an MFA in printmaking from the University of Texas.

His drawings often contain unusual, sometimes grotesque figures in abstract environments. In his most recent drawings his abstract patterns and forms made with dense clusters of marks consume the entire page.

Listen as Alex explains where this imagery is drawn from, and the various cycles his ideas and work go through over time.
