Brian Alfred (Pittsburgh, 1974) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
Brian Alfred is an American artist who, while having a well-defined and easily recognised style, tries in every way to experiment with different compositional and technical solutions.
In his works, painting, collages, and 3-D animations follow each other in search of stylistic and compositional unity, and the resulting images are recognisable above all for the evident and necessary two-dimensionality that they display.
The surfaces of his works are flat, the result of the graphics processing which came about with the earliest digital imaging, but whose roots also dig into the territory of Pop Art and, even further back in time, they might also be nourished by the surprising and famous Japanese prints of the Edo period.
The artwork was shown at the exhibition Magic Window, 2009.
