Alex Gene Morrison
Alex Gene Morrison graduated with MA Painting from the Royal College of Art, London in 2002 having completed his BA (Hons) Fine Art at City & Guilds of London Art School in 2000. He has exhibited globally and his work is held in private collections in France, Germany, Switzerland, United Kingdom & United States. Morrison has a longstanding interest in archetypal imagery and mythologies that abridge modern and ancient man—the totemic and primitive are of great importance. However, this is filtered through a contemporary lens where layered cultural influences seep into the work, including Modernist painting; early video game aesthetics; retro-futurism; sub cultural graphic design; cartoons and comics.
