Alex Markwith is an American visual artist who graduated from Rhode Island School of Design (BFA Painting, 2011), and has exhibited in many cities including New York, Los Angeles, Houston, Helsinki and Paris. Markwith's work is playful yet grounded due to his use of construction supplies throughout his work, which references the ethos of any New York city street: lively, loud, and forever under construction. Working almost exclusively in abstraction, his work combines painting, drawing and sculpture, in varying proportions.
Markwith currently lives and exhibits his art in Helsinki, Finland. He currently shows work in his studio for the annual Konstrundan art event, as well as MM Hanko, Max Mara Helsinki, Galleria Katariina, and Galleria Aarni.
