Alex McLeod is a new media visual artist from Toronto. His images recall the wide-open vistas of romantic landscape painting, and strange otherworldly dystopias. Works, such as Art Gems’ Rainbow Mountain, feature a unique formal marriage between innovative digital technologies and a distinctly Canadian matrix of idolized landscapes. The work subsumes national art traditions and renders monumental landscapes in new media dimensions.
Following his BFA from the Ontario College of Art and Design University, McLeod pursued a Master of Digital Media from the Yeates School of Graduate Studies at Ryerson University. He has exhibited nationally and internationally, including shows in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, New York, San Jose (California), London (UK), Barcelona, Austria. He is represented by Galerie Division in Montreal and Toronto.
