Jason Shawn Alexander

Jason Shawn Alexander is an expressionist figurative painter from Tennessee, now living and working in Los Angeles.  His intimate works penetrate to the core of human integrity, often depicting images of figures wrenched in that critical space where the strained coordination of mind, body, and spirit, hangs in the balance of existential woe.

A keen autodidact, Alexander pulls from the vulnerability, fear, and underlying strength of his rural upbringing, just outside of the haunting home of the Delta Blues.  Encouraged by his factory-employed father to pursue a career as an artist, Alexander accrued through staunch pragmatism and southern tenacity an extensive knowledge of fine art.  Citing major influences in Francis Bacon, Anselm Kiefer, Kathe Kollwitz, Cy Twombly, and Patrick Graham; his earliest and enduring inspirations came from the art books kept by his father of 
Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Goya, and Degas.
