This biography from the Archives of AskART:
John Alexander, whose abstract work tends towards Surrealism, was born in Beaumont, Texas on October 26, 1945. He grew up in eastern Texas and earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Lamar University and his Master of Fine Arts from Southern Methodist University. He has been called "a master of darkness and depth" because of his grim-seeming palette relieved only by the light from a sickly sulfurous glow.

Alexander served as Assistant Professor of Art at the University of Houston in 1971. He moved to New York City in 1979. Since then, he has largely split his output into two distinct genres: caustic satirical portraits and profuse, vaguely menacing landscapes.

He maintains a studio in Amagansett, Long Island. Among the artists he especially admires are Claude Monet, Antonio Lopez Garcia and Lucien Freud.
