Surrealism is one of my favorite artistic styles and the work of Alex Gardner stands apart from the rest as a modern approach to the style that has evolved immensely over the course the past several decades. Instead of paying specific attention to the main details, Gardner focuses more on the lesser noticed specifics like line contours and background imagery.

The faceless people within the work of Gardner gives each the unique quality of being multinational and multifaceted; we can easily slip ourselves into the world of these trouble characters simply because they are the any man or woman.

Based out of Los Angeles, Gardner's work "explores human nature and reoccurring themes such as desire, ethics and anxiety are often juxtaposed with the notion of leisure."
