Marc Alexander was born in Pretoria, South Africa, but now lives and works in Cape Town. He is best known for his hyper-realistic portraiture and wildlife paintings.
Marc qualified and worked as a Museum Technologist and Curator for the Pretoria Art Museum. He paints mostly in oils in the style of the traditional realist, but he also enjoys combining the art of gilding and texturing in his paintings. He aims always to capture and express subjects and themes about our world and the human condition, especially those themes that challenge the way we live.
