Former Polytechnic Diploma Studio student Alex Schramm has launched a new website: http://www.alex-schramm.com/
I like this new series of work entitled LUCA (Last Universal Common Ancestor):
Alex Schramm is an investigative and vigorous tinkerer whose work may be seen in the context of Sci-Fi Historicism.
He has evolved a structuralist approach to anthropomorphic movements, achieving an invigorating beauty with
meticulous finishes that overshadow a quite technical approach. He fuses linguistic and mechanical ready-mades into
characters with a kind of visual consistency never seen before.
The quality of his work is reminiscent of drawings by Francis Bacon, Leonardo da Vinci, Max Ernst and the writings
by Alfred Jarry, Lewis Carroll and Rabelais.
Alex Schramm currently lives and works as artist and architect in London.
