Alexander Hayden (b. 1993) is a figurative artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York.
His works currently center on themes of manipulation, violence, the inconsistency of identity, the relationship of consciousness and environment, acceptance of the entire spectrum of one’s character traits, and seeking peace in indifference. The artist strings these melodies along more intimate content based on the experiences of his personal life.
Hayden notes other major themes are the inaccuracy of communication and perception, and an emphasis on direct personal experience. Addressing this, he allows a broad range of emotions and ambiguous imagery to show in his work, leaving each piece unhindered by the artist’s definition, and open to the viewer’s.
