After migrating to Australia, Sydney in the late 90’s, Alex decided to dedicate his life in art. As a passionate artist, Alex spends most of his leisure time researching and learning from various Australian contemporary art works. He completed a four-year course Advanced Diploma in Fine Arts at TAFE Sydney Institute
Alex is an artist who is equipped with deep and rich cultural background, knowledge, along with intellectual and technical capacity. This is reflected in his artworks. As a professional Chinese Calligraphy artist, Alex was able to assimilate his oriental, Zen-based background with Western styles and create his own signature style.
He expresses the spiritual reality on the existence of human’s soul, mind and body through his works. With the exposure of both Asian and Western cultures, Alex has been reflecting his life long experiences in his works; a fusion between Chinese Calligraphy Zen inspired art and Western influenced contemporary art.
“I wish to allow imagination to roam the untamed. Talent can then regain the lost original magic to explore a world that is so deep, with unconscious underlying elements, essence and illusory dreams.” – Alex Zou
