​​​​​Selected works

Alex L. Bennett is a visual artist based in the Pacific Northwest. His work draws inspiration from the natural world and the tradition of nature illustration.  Street art and modern  urbanization also have a strong thread in his surreal and layered images.  Combining these stylistic influences, Alex creates his own visual language and personal symbolism.  Working in a variety of mediums, his work is often self reflective and explores the varied  relationships between humanity and nature.    


 Alex also works digitally. His digital work includes character design, illustration, texturing, environments, and 3D models.  He is currently pursuing an MFA in Digital Art at DigiPen Institute of Technology in Redmond, WA.
