The uncanny aesthetic of Alex Roulette's paintings is likely caused by his source material: extensive photographs and found images of an area filtered through distorted and subjective memory. His oil paintings have subtle fantasy elements that could just as easily go unexplained (see the blue smoke cloud), while his choices in posture and perspective feel photorealistic.

Alex Roulette lives and works in New York City.
