Alex DelBello | NYC Artist
Throughout this post, I want to highlight the incredible achievements and work of a New York City based artist, Alex DelBello. Alex is an extremely talented artist who specializes in creating murals, paintings, drawings, and more. There is no one better suited to talk to their talents and experience than themselves, so I’ll let Alex do the rest of the talking:
“My large scale paintings build an alternate world where numerous characters, symbols and motifs live. In a graphic-surrealist style, using bold lines and bright, flat colors, the worlds are built onto paper. These characters exist in seemingly unlivable forms—through differing mutations, transformations and impossible ingestions and excretions—but always thrive. Many contain abiotic qualities, however most objects within the paintings are alive. By repeating symbols and creatures throughout the works, it connects the paintings to show that this world contains its own sense of time, and that it houses the motifs in a place to escape, without escape. This is a reflection of feelings caused by events occurring in our real world.
This science-fiction-inspired world within the paintings provides an alternate thinking space by allowing a lens to further delve into our current events, experiences and emotions from real life. It questions our understanding of the world we live in, our interactions with it, with each other, and our presence in a larger universe.
Alex graduated from Parsons School of Design in 2020 with a BFA in Fine Arts. She currently lives and works in Astoria, New York.”
