Alex Sewell
Painter Alex Sewell (b. 1989) brings emotional complexity to ‘90s kids nostalgia. He revisits scenes from childhood (like cardboard forts and video games) through the perspective of adulthood. Take a closer look at his work and you'll find you’ve been tricked by his skill—the pixel is oil paint, the ripped canvas is intact—but, even then, his stories feel earnest as ever.
