Hello

I'm a teacher, researcher, writer and artist based in Cape Town, South Africa. Contact me at neeskealexander@gmail.com

Training

Since 2002, Ian Tainton, my art mentor, has taught me printmaking, the magic of oils and a practical art philosophy. I practised Korean brush painting while living in South Korea and that improved my technique and taught me the value of repetition. During 2018, I did a post-graduate degree in illustration where I mastered scientific, conceptual and narrative illustration techniques as well as comics illustration and life drawing.

Current projects

At the moment I'm exploring printmaking and focussing on narrative illustration. Have a look at my Instagram account for the latest updates. My printmaking adventures can be found here. I'm also taking part in many group exhibitions and competitions.

#neeskesworkshop

Recently, I've hosted art workshops in and around Cape Town. I love doing this, as it brings together my two great passions (art + education). If you'd like to know when the next workshop is happening, please send me an email at neeskealexander@gmail.com and I will add you to the mailing list.
