Alexander Rhys

"I'm not interested in the works making sense. I am interested in the intital visual aspect".

His unique works manipulate acrylics with the aim to take the viewer on a journey of finding the ordinary, extraordinary. Rhys' global and diverse clients include outdoor advertising giants Clear Channel, private equity firm LDC , model and actress Mille Brady and leading Kenyan hip-hop artist Octopizzio .  In 2019 Rhys met British Prime Minister Theresa May to discuss how art can be used to help fight crime and how it can have a positive effect on people’s life’s.  Most recently , Rhys was invited to have his portrait taken by world-renowned photographer RANKIN at his studio in London.

 

He is inspired by ripped billboards, layers of posters plastered onto walls, which he uses in creating a new language from these snippets of information that have been layered on top of each other.

Seeing the beauty in the banality of decay and discarded objects, such derelict spaces, and takeaway flyers.
