Darko Alexander's professional background is Classical Painters Academy and full time studies of Architecture. He has been practicing figurative artist for twenty five odd years. Now lives and works in Shoreditch London UK.
All aspects of his Art are governed by Light and Effects this ever-present Natural phenomena has on us and our surroundings. Abstract aspects of light are sometimes less then obvious but we all still register them without fail. Beside light his artistic preoccupation is with old industrial buildings still to be found in East London. Old factories, warehouses and old brick and mortar in general posses strong magic and subtle charm but capture and transformation of these qualities into tangible art has proven quite elusive for quite some time. Regardless of his previous experience with other cities and his considerable skill with traditional art media Darko Alexander had to make radical switch from his longtime favorite media oil painting to alternative techniques in order to achieve imagery truly sympathetic to this historically hard to pin down subject.
London is old and very complicated city which like nervous human sitter resists all artistic approaches and traditional media efforts aimed to capture it's elusive charm and soul. These Giclee prints of London less known areas and authentic attractions represent first to artist positive result of his sustained efforts. Modern New Age media - methods of image capture, processing and representation have proven in this case as right choice more than capable of true and very real artistic merit.
