Alex Hess

Pittsburgh, PA

Alex Hess is a premiere artisan illustrator that focuses on creating what would be best described as intricate illustrations influenced by retro compositions and stylistic traits. Inspirations range from vintage Americana, Art Nouveau, Pop Art, Art Deco, Street Art, and even contemporary poster artists in the ever revolving print world.

Creating compelling imagery is fueled consistently by pop culture and the way in which the populist phenomenon effects the masses. Different approaches reflect just that in by absorbing a wide range of diverse illustrative vibes, typography, color contrasting, and compositional aspects. Typically the medium of choice is digital painting which allows the work to develop strong tonal vibrancies on each piece. Printed works generally include Original Film Posters, Portraits, Tribute, and Venue Posters.
