About

Alex Fowler was born in London in 1975. After taking a Foundation Course at Chelsea and a Degree in Art History at Edinburgh University Alex studied painting at Heatherley’s School of Fine Art in London, where he was awarded the Heatherleys Prize. In 2004 he was elected a member of The New English Art Club.

He paints Still Lifes, Landscapes and Portraits predominately in oils, but in a sense it is the experience of looking which is the actual subject of his work, whether he be working on a large still life painting in the relative calm of the studio or out in the streets of a foreign city, all the senses honed for the excitement of whatever visual encounter is round the next corner.
