Alexander Robinson is a self-taught painter based in Toronto, Ontario. Playfully sentimental, Alexander’s work is filled with simple forms that inhabit geometric compositions where rich textures clash with expressive lines. Reminiscent of the 2D platformer games from his youth, his paintings capture the fleeting moments of clarity we often experience in a world brimming with complexity. Rendered with acrylic paint, Alexander regularly utilizes afro styling picks as artistic tools for mark-making, paying homage to his roots.

Alexander is also the Founder, Creative Director and CEO of lifestyle brand, Black Sisyphus which produces 3D-printed functional pieces of art to make the small moments in our lives more engaging.
