About the Artist
M. Alexander Gray (Alex) grew up in Alexandria, Virginia. He took an interest in visual things from young age. Some of his earliest memories involve his enthusiasm for photos and illustrations in National Geographic magazine and his attempts to trace them. In elementary school, Alex enjoyed collaborating on drawings with his friends and would seek to imitate what he liked about their drawing styles.
Alex attended the art school at Virginia Commonwealth University, but completed his education at the Corcoran College of Art and Design.
Since mid-2013, Alex has dedicated himself to working on his art full-time. He has exhibited at galleries not only in the DC area but also nationally, and received numerous awards and recognitions. In 2014, he began working and exhibiting at the Torpedo Factory Art Center and, in 2018, acquired his own studio there.
