Alexander, George – “Ready To Take Flight” Acrylic
George Alexander is known for his creative paintings in acrylic on canvas. He is Muscogee artist from Oklahoma. This painting is a recent piece with one of his stylized birds as the central image. His style of painting is dynamic. He says of his work, “It’s important to juxtapose iconic native imagery with my own experience and use symbolism that speaks to my generation. I want to force the viewer to challenge their preconceived notions of ‘Indian’.” George graduated in 2016 from the Institute of American Indian Art and is currently studying painting in Florence, Italy. We are pleased to have his paintings at King Galleries.
