Alex Sewell

Alex Sewell is an artist and painter from Lynn, MA living and working in Brooklyn, NY. He is represented by TOTAH located at 183 Stanton St. in New York City's Lower East Side.

Alex Sewell's work is largely informed by his personal narrative, and partly reflects the culture and customs of his youth. He utilizes semiotics and direct compositions to invite the viewer to inspect and feel an association with the subjects presented which appear as interstitial totems of a larger story. Text and doodles dot the work with bits of aesthetic deskilling, drawings with rigid and clumsy tools that help unite the work through a recurring dichotomy executed in a shallow depth of field
