Alex sees his artwork as supporting a positive inner conversation by promoting messages that help people challenge the negative voices that so often occupy thought.
He writes, “The public conversation about worth, value, and well-being is often dark. We are surrounded by belittling messages of materialism, bullying, and violence. Instead, imagine the words 'You Are Loved,' - the letters, 12 feet tall, covering the side of a public school in your community... Imagine the young woman, struggling with fears about her appearance, drinking in a confident, colorful mural declaring 'You Are Beautiful' instead of the belittling message of sex-based advertising. Imagine a young man struggling to find work encountering an unequivocal public statement that 'You Are Needed.'"
- YOU ARE LOVED
- YOU ARE NEEDED
- YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL
- YOU ARE IMPORTANT
- YOU CAN DO IT.
