About
Studio Member since 2009

Alex Scott was born in 1987 and is a Chicago native. Known for his use of reduced forms and flat, bright colors, Scott’s fresh, direct approach appeals to our human yearning for simplicity and the nostalgia of childhood.

“When I look at my pictures, and when other people look at my pictures, that is when I’m inspired. I’m inspired to help others, the studio, different things, and doing collaboration. I love making art.”

Scott’s work is inspired by the alphabet, books and other language-learning tools found in the studio. His tools of choice are markers, oil pastels, paint, and colored pencils.

“My favorite things that I draw are [the] sun, clouds, grass, hippos, dolls, characters, people, birds, mice, skeleton woodpecker, a wiener dog, hippo, a spotted dog. People like that I do different things.”

Since joining the studio, Scott’s work has been featured in galleries and exhibitions including his solo show titled “Summer Things” in 2014. More recently, Scott was featured in Circle Contemporary’s exhibition “The Beasts”, as well as the continuation of that exhibition at The Other Art Fair located at MANA Contemporary in September 2018.

“I make art because I want to be happy. I would rather make art than do anything.”
