New print collection. Spring 2021
Eight years ago in 2013 I first created a series of prints the Seven Sisters. Over the years, I have been able to create much larger prints to evoke the impressive scale of the cliffs, whilst remaining true to my love for ink line drawings and the use of bold graphic colour.
Two large panoramic prints and seven square formats.
This collection of prints is a result of the observation of the Sussex coastline and study of its flora and fauna and geology and topography. I am conscious of images by Modern British artists such as Eric Slater and Arthur Ridgen Read who depicted these landscapes, albeit with completely different techniques. For me, John Masefield’s poem ‘Sea Fever’ perfectly evokes the elements we experience around the chalk cliffs of the Seven Sisters.
‘And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.’

Magazines and galleries
‘It’s a bit of shame to confine the work of Alej ez to our A5 cover. His panoramic drawings which capture local landscapes with the kind of confident, sparing line you might expect of an architect, often extend over several meters.’ Viva Magazine April 2019 Brighton.
‘Architect turn artist Alej ez uses his skills as a draftsman to create complex and beautiful panoramic line images of Brighton and Sussex buildings and landscapes.’ Melita Dennett Sep 2019 Reverb Radio.
‘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
