A hand balancing a house of cards, a key dangling in front of a birch wood forrest, flowers growing out of a rusty old boiler, these are the types of images you will find when viewing Radin’s work. Alex Radin is an internationally collected artist who happens to be a Charleston local. Surrealism and metaphor have increasingly become a standard in Radin’s work. In speaking of his approach to creating Alex says, "While ideas are the driving force behind my work I place a high value on technique and love to get lost in the design and breakup of space. I am intensely interested in the conversation that colors have with one another as well as communication between strokes and other strokes, shapes, and colors. Even though I get lost in all this, I always return to my subject matter in the end. My desire is to help people see the world in ways they may not have seen it before. I want to draw people’s attention to the beauty and the mystery that surrounds us every day."
If you happen to be in Charleston during Spoleto festival you can meet Alex and see his work in person during the Piccolo Spoleto Outdoor Art Exhibition in Marion Square or you can contact him to see other locations where his work is currently showing.
