Born in 1984 McLeod is new media visual artist from Scarborough. He is represented by Dision Gallery in Toronto and Montreal.
McLeod produces small abstract forms, trees, clouds, urban structures more or less chaotic, which he then covers with materials and ultra-realistic textures that simulate glass, crystal, wood, fabric, metal, porcelain, plastic… the artist also plays with light causing lightness and darkness to interfere in a profound way, thus offering the viewer a sense of confusion and enabling him to enter into the realm of the dream through his entirely computer-generated images and C-Print editions, depicting unreal landscapes.
Alex McLeod lives and works in Toronto. An OCAD graduate, Alex McLeod studied drawing then switched to computer-generated digital imagery. He presented his works widely in Canada, especially in Montreal, Toronto, Regina, but also in the United States, like New York, Hamilton, Philadelphia, Chicago, and in France, Spain, Sweden, New-Zealand and Brazil. In 2009, he received a visual art grant from the Council of Art of Toronto.
