Alex Macon is a multidisciplinary artist and writer with a love of color and pop culture. Originally from Cleveland, he is currently in his last semester studying Fine Arts at the University of Cincinnati.
Macon is a digital photographer and installation artist with focuses on color theory, pop culture, human anatomy, and the destruction of stereotypes and marginalization. As a photographer, his work addresses societal inequities and cultural experiences in a colorful, campy aesthetic.
As a sculptor, he works primarily in wood, clay, metal, and fiber art. These pieces are quirky and colorful in nature, embracing the oddity of life, while also addressing important and poignant social issues. His work remains focused on one thing: vibrancy. Not only vibrancy in colors, but the vibrancy that lies within the human race.
With a unique perspective and voice, his work is filled to the brim with loaded references to his identity and views on the absurdity within the human experience.
