About the Artist:

Artist Alexander Aristotle lives in the Hell's Kitchen District and attends The Calhoun School, a progressive Manhattan school on the Upper West Side. He has been creating and selling unique urban inspired fine art since the age of 6 to collectors worldwide, and had his first NYC gallery exhibition at the age of 8.

Through his photography and prints he invites the viewer to reflect on the simpliCITY of the urban world that surrounds him. He has a fascination with seemingly ordinary urban objects - their configuration, function and design. These objects, such as fire hydrants, manhole covers, subways, and street graffiti are the basis for most of his highly detailed and observant artwork.
