Alex Pardee’s unique style is one conceived through watching years of horror movies, writing graffiti, and listening to gangster rap. He’s best known for his self-published underground comics and calendars, such as "Bunnywith" & "Snoring Blood", along with his gallery showings, where his pieces are often brought to life by translating random shapes and colors into signs of torment and absurdity. By juxtaposing these two conflicting moods, Alex makes his works more personal to his viewers, forcing them to project their own feelings and emotions onto each character in his twisted universe.
In addition to demeaning celebrities, Alex continues to use his art as a means of self-medication, creating emotionally charged images on canvases, sketchbooks, and any other surfaces he can cover with his bizarre characters.
