I met Alex Lukawski in Hostel Earphoria’s basement at a show for noise poppers DAYMAKER. and steely shoegaze outfit Not For You.¬†Everything was purple. A few weeks later I saw her cool girl band Glamour Hotline play a fun, rough set at a cool, rough show. There were Prince projections! ~*THEN *~ I seen her artwork hanging at Dollhouse DIY. Her portraits were something like I had never seent before, and I am happy we got to talk about it and that I get to share it with you here.

Alex says: “I have always been interested in drawing and painting people. I am fascinated by the array of hues found in skin tones and the interesting shapes that make up the face. Over the past couple years I have been painting portraits with loose brush strokes and unexpected saturated colors. I find that by referencing pictures with high lighting contrast it allows me to be more experimental in my painting techniques. I draw a lot of inspiration from my friends, the lighting at concerts, collaging and bad instagram filters.”
