Realism Paintings by Alex Alemany
Alex Alemany was born on January 5, 1943 in Gandia (Valencia), Spain. He studied Fine Arts between 1961 and 1966 at the “Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Carlos” in Valencia.
Alex Alemany’s realism (and in some of his work, his hyper-realism) kept drifting towards an unmistakable style of his own resulting from personal introspection, gradually becoming more and more distant from the coldness of other realist concepts with a strong influence of photography as American realism was. Alemany’s work is the missing link between poetry and painting.

Denoting deep poetic content, the elements and shapes of his works are treated with “poetic licence” and the symbolism used is so subtle that it captures the viewer, stimulating his capacity to interpret. This is work which can produce any effect, except indifference, and the language used contributes to a richer interpretation. His eclectic aspirations led him to sporadic incursions into other styles: formalistic compositions, social painting, expressionism, etc…
