Alex McLeod, 29, was born in Scarborough and graduated from the Ontario College of Art & Design in 2007 from the drawing and painting faculty. Through digital prints, sculpture, video, and installation, McLeod presents visuals that appear as if “they could exist in real life,” but are only composites of 1’s and 0’s birthed through a homemade render farm and some YouTube tutorials.
Since his first exhibit in Toronto, in 2009, McLeod work has been presented internationally from New York to New Zealand. Recently McLeod opened an exhibit at the Surrey Art Gallery with artist Brendan Tang. The exhibition involved a live feed of the gallery, real time composited video, and sculpture.
McLeod is currently completing his eighth solo show which will be presented though Gallery Jones, Vancouver
