The creation of art prints is my passion. The art process starts with original ink drawings to which I apply colour digitally. With the use of art paper and archival inks for best quality I issue the large formats as limited editions whilst smaller works form open editions.

And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.’

Magazines and galleries

‘The West Pier is particularly beautiful when we look at the work of Alej ez.’ Yael October 2019 Latest TV interview.
‘Ez’s architectural training is clear in his prints – the delicate use of line, the precision of structures and forms, the scale and sense of space conveyed in colour and tone. But these are more than just aerial views of much loved places. Ez’s meticulous colour blocking and rhythmic use of line command an emotional response, a delight in a treasured memory, of making space and sense in the world.’ N Tyssom from Gallery 94 Fair Ground Exhibition Glyndebourne
