Alex Mullen is an emerging artist from Adelaide. He has been living in London for the past three years, where he has exhibited several times. Mullen has also taken part in a Residency in India, under went a mentorship with Stewart Macfarlane and won a scholarship for the drawing marathon at the New York Studio School. As well as this, Mullen is a founding member of Floating Goose Studios.
Mullen's work sits somewhere between the observed and the imagined. The combined use of observation, reference images, memory and invention, generate scenes which feel distinctly familiar, yet are skewed by perspective and colour distortions. Engaging with the absurdity of existence and playing off ideas of existential philosophy, Mullen uses paint to make sense of the world and his place within it.
