Alex Nero (b. March 26, 1986, Ukraine) is an American artist living and working in New York City. His current body of work utilizes experimental techniques with chemistry and physical dynamics of paint within vessels of water, captured by digital photography. Nero’s imagery inspires a dialogue with the subconscious, allowing a unique experience through individual interpretation.  His work has reached millions of viewers and can be found in private and corporate collections throughout the world.

Alex Nero showed in “All Art Everything”, a collaborative exhibition between Guy Hepner and Avant Arte.

Avant Arte is a creative collective that is about everything art. Christian and Curtis are based in the Netherlands and have built their global art platform on the basic mantra that art should be shared with the world.

Our goal is to make all art accessible to anyone in the world. To connect people with art and the artist they love. To empower artist and creatives to share their dreamers with the world. To become a part of the art you love.”

The second exhibition of this collective series, Guy Hepner and Avant Arte aim to merge the boundaries of technology and art. The exhibition presents a collection of the most trending artists currently online, and explore the current fascination of social media, technology and the contemporary artist.

Artist Statement:

In the shared universe we’re making a kind of musical song, the lyrics being composed of, and by, tiny instruments of its own we call ‘subatomic’ waves and particles, always in that flux,  ‘performing’, regardless of who’s listening, attending their changeable performance…

So, in the same spirit of this kind of universal symphony I use other sorts of ‘instruments’ as my medium, like water, paint, mirrors, magnets and chemicals of different kinds, all ‘composed’ of  universal subatomic energy (E), mass (m) & light (c), Einstein’s symphony in ‘U’ flat .

I have learned from other fellow explorers of this fluid composition that our brains may act like antennae gathering such vibrating signals like our ears do with instrumental music, these signals themselves forming patterns for our senses, like ink-blots may do with and for our eyes….
