Alexander Heaton is a British painter, printmaker and mountaineer based in London. Having completed his BA from Central St. Martins, his work has been exhibited extensively in galleries, institutions, and art fairs internationally.
His paintings are immaculate visions of his subjective experience of nature. The paintings look out from the summits of mountains and contemplate the beyond, and through them, he continues on the true Romantic journey, but in a very 21st-century way.
Working with a range of different materials, from oil and acrylic paint to gold-leaf and screen-printing, Alexander Heaton's paintings touch on the common longing in all of us to escape the modern urban landscape and throw ourselves into serene expanses and awe-inspiring natural phenomena.
Witnessing in nature an unsentimental commitment to change and renewal, his paintings reflect on human mortality and seek to engage with nature's spiritual components.Website
