Alex Gardner

is a Los Angeles painter who resists categorization.

Gardner, who grew up in Southern California, only decided to fully commit to his artistry in 2014. Although he studied illustration in college, being an artist never seemed like it could be a full-time career for him. Now, though, he says “without financial boundaries” he wants to do “more interactive installations.”

Alex Gardner insists that he is not a surrealist, in spite of a niggling impulse to apply that descriptor to his work. Everyday conversations, commutes and routines form the main inspiration for his paintings, as opposed to dreamy, otherworldly narratives.
