The large-scale oil paintings by Alex Gross refer to modern invasions of private space.
The artist Alex Gross lives and works in Los Angeles, California. In 1990, he received his bachelor’s degree at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Since then he has participated in eight individual exhibitions in various galleries, museums and gallery exhibitions all over the world. His large-scale oil paintings are based on the modern state of the art and focus on the corporate invasion of private space, the obsession with technology and the inability to be concentrated and attentive.
Gross received the renowned Artist’s Fellowship from the Japan Foundation and several faculty scholarships from the Art Center College of Design where he taught from 1994 to 2005. In the summer of 2007, Gross’ first Career Survey Museum Show took place at the Grand Central Art Center in Santa Ana, California.
