Artist Alexander Charriol continuously conveys a sense of motion and transformation in his work.

‘Growing up on different continents has enormously influenced my work. Always moving as a young boy taught me to embrace change, and to quickly make new and interesting connections.’ It is this sense of connection that informed his highly acclaimed body of work, ‘Human Flow’, which focuses on the human touch. Its underlying narrative; one of unity within diversity, resonates strongly with Charriol. ‘Exploring art in each unique culture has kept me questioning and constantly curious. Through art I also began to express my cultural experiences and was able to absorb, interpret and appreciate the art and its differences with an open mind.’ Working in a variety of mediums, including oils, plastic, and wood, Charriol’s work is primal, energetic and humorous. French-American, b. 1979, based in Los Angeles, CA, United States
  • Human existence inspires me. Our need to interact, to touch, to smell, to create a dialogue and to become intimate fuels our evolution. Our instinct for survival and the inevitability of death speak beyond all languages, cultures, politics,religions, morals and values and unites us towards an ultimate goal: Life.

  • Unity between each other and unity within ourselves is always a driving force in my work. My art is an extension of myself, and I let my instincts and flow of energy drive my creativity, rather than my more analytical mind. The result exposes my most visceral emotions; and I hope evokes a similar reaction from viewers. Perhaps awakening a powerful response, even for just a moment.

  • In my most recent series, “Human Flow” I focused on the mystery behind the human touch. Each painting tells the story of an overpowering energy that feeds our desire to connect to each other. In contrast, I am now examining individuality as a subject; how the body and mind relates to their surroundings, and the impact of how one sees oneself in the eyes of others, and in their own image. The enigmatic power of self.
