Alex Alemany was born on January 5, 1943 in Gandia (Valencia). He studied Fine Arts between 1961 and 1966 at the “Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Carlos” in Valencia.
Denoting deep poetic content, the elements and shapes of his works are treated with “poetic licence” and the symbolism used is so subtle that it captures the viewer, stimulating his capacity to interpret. This is work which can produce any effect, except indifference, and the language used contributes to a richer interpretation. His eclectic aspirations led him to sporadic incursions into other styles: formalistic compositions, social painting, expressionism, etc...
Through his work, we can find many portraits showing us his love for the human figure. Even in this difficult way of painting, Alex Alemany has been able to include the poetry of his work, giving the portrait not only the physical aspect of the human being but also the personality and the psychological profile, far from the “academic portrait”.
