The Bold Voice of Illustrator Jake Alexander

 

The colors are bright and dirty, and you can feel the paintbrush. Either a perfected real-world technique or digital analogy, it does not matter. The illustrations of Jake Alexander have the broad strokes and compositions of flower-sack painted film posters from ’80s Ghana.

Alexander’s illustrations speak with a big voice and with each piece, his point is clear. There is a clarity to his work that goes beyond the piece itself. Alexander speaks to police brutality, profiling, or just the specificities you feel during the night gazing out of your window.
