Alexander Aghayere Biography      

Alexander Aghayere was born May 24th 1994, in the midst of the internet and technological boom. Like a visual sponge of sorts, Alexander Aghayere calls on his memories of imagery from his adolescence to bring forward his bold vision of raw emotion and ambiguous narrative. This combination for inspiration is no surprise to Alexander, who recalls his love for storytelling originally coming from his father’s disciplining style. His father would regale coming of age stories about his own life in Nigeria before he moved to Italy, and lastly the United States. Alexander admits he learned a lot about the human experience through those stories, and that it has been the main culprit for his obsession with his own fleeting adolescent experience.

After graduating from high school Alexander relocated from his cornfield suburb of Oswego, IL to the bustling factory of passion and grit that is Chicago. It was within Chicago’s beautiful steel walls that he subsequently looked inward to discover his own voice among the constant noise of the city. Adopting the swagger of the urban environment, Alexander, brought out his stark and ominously detailed style to the surface with his work “The Waltz”. The work acts as a bridge to Alexander’s vivid catalog of nostalgic imagery combining bold brush strokes that strike across the canvas like lightning juxtaposed with abstractions of the human form, all of which represent himself in some way. Doing so he creates a scene that harnesses a conglomerate of personal, detailed and complex emotions in a way that makes the narrative and the feelings represented in the work one and the same. Alexander understands that no human experience belongs to one sole person, he believes there is only one story for all and we all represent the perspectives that complete the whole. With his creations, Alexander works to provide a moment within his pieces that acts as a catalyst to the viewer's own narratives and the feelings that they hold, in hopes to help others gain catharsis by having a connection with themselves through a perspective that is not their own.
