Alex White Mazzarella Paintings
Alex White Mazzarella was born in Boston, USA in 1979 and moved to New York in 2008. He graduated from Clark University with a degree in economics and studied city planning in graduate school. He set off immediately after to Barcelona Spain and consequently Hong Kong China where he would live and work as an urbanist. His talent and affinity for drawing was noted at a young age and his world travels/observations have been a constant influence. His work has been inspired largely by street art and by the likes of Kirchner, Appel, Basquiat, Avery, Pollock, and Tapies. Self-taught in principle, he has studied under Larry Poons, Frank O’Cain and Phillip Sherrod at the Art Students League and continues to work with Hugo Bastidas. He has been exhibiting his work in New York since early 2009 after being discovered by Richard Temperio of the Sideshow Gallery of Williamsburg Brooklyn. His work is in private collections throughout the United States and Europe.

Artist's Statement:
My recent paintings are voyages through everyday observations in New York City. Their creation has come through an abandonment of “decision making” and reliance upon transmission through instinct. I am using pastels, charcoal, acrylic, coffee, spray paint, enamel and collage to create through spontaneity. “A universe of phenomenon spins, chaos, chemistry, creation. An ongoing evolution of moments. Infinite memory, inexistent, yet the foundation for every moment of light. Likewise we exist; minds churning souls searching, we interpret and create our moments… complicating, simplifying, questioning, confirming… all from an unknown source. The spontaneity of it all.” “Big bang snapshots… glimpses into the unidentifiable source of creation via expression. An activation of the indigenous and subjugation of the conscious, remixing media and swimming through the metaphysical aquarium living and freezing realities.”
