The art of Gauguin and Matisse made a deep influence on Alex's oil technique. His oil paintings capture the emotive quality of his subjects, sometimes peaceful, sometimes dynamic, with fluid brushwork and a sensitivity to color relationships. His oil paints are influenced by the art and philosophies of the past and present. Aslo the old Mesopotamian art made a deep impression on his small sculptures.
