Biography

Alex Williamson is a commercial illustrator, graphic artist and academic based in Bath in the Southwest of the UK. Alex has a BA Graphic Design / Printmaking from Leeds Metropolitan University and an MA in Visual Communication from the RCA.

As an image-maker Alex creates bold graphic artwork using collage and print techniques, working across digital and analogue to generate narrative ideas that explore intersections between graphic form, drawing and the photographic image. His creative process starts with collage, exploring dissonances between images, forms, textures, mark making and colour and exploits the visual ideas these juxtapositions generate. His use of abstract elements and visual layering reflects the multiple ways imagery and ideas are communicated and felt in today’s global / digital society.

Through research and personal practice, Alex produces and exhibits experimental, process led work. In his academic research and teaching he seeks to explore how a collage based approach to image-making and non linear storytelling might contribute towards new visual or sensory experiences and go on to inform other areas of creative practice.

Commercially, Alex has an editorial interest in investigating contemporary issues and working on themes around politics, culture and social engagement. He produces a wide range of work for clients in the advertising, corporate, editorial and publishing fields.

Recent clients include: Royal Mail, Adobe, Addidas, Virgin Mobile, Omega, Bank of America, World Health Organisation, Southern Poverty Law Centre, Rolling Stone Magazine, New Scientist, The New Yorker, The Guardian, Wall Street Journal, Portobello Books, Random House, The Science Museum, Faber&Faber, The Economist, Vodafone, Amazon, Footlocker, Penguin, ITV, The Atlantic Magazine

Alex currently lectures on the 'Graphic Communication’ BA(Hons)course at Bath Spa University having previously taught 'Design for Interaction and Moving Image' BA(Hons) at London College of Communication and BA(Hons) ‘Illustration’ at University of West England, Bristol. He has also recently worked as an External Examiner in Visual Communications at the the Royal College of Art, and is currently employed as External Examiner to the Ba(Hons) Illustration course at Brighton University.
