 Black Dogs, 2017 Alexander Fals From a lineage of Artists, Scholars and Revolutionaries for Social Justice, Alexander Fals is in a genre all his own. His paintings are not just wall hangings, but windows into a magical world where all things have beauty and mystery is worth fighting for.  The mineral pigments used are colors that have been underground, lying undisturbed for millions of years. Naturally Interspersed with iridescent flex of Mika, stones and crystals, this pallet can’t be purchased anywhere in the world. Its vibrancy and depth is astonishing. As of 2018, the paintings of Alexander Fals are still unDiscovered by the greater Art Market. The prices of these unique pieces have more than doubled since last year, and already two of 23 original paintings have been purchased. Their unveiling will take place at the newly opened Hollerhorn Distilling, Naples, NY, on October 3, 2018. At least a portion of the collection will be up and available for viewing during normal business hours through Sunday, October 7. Original pieces on canvas will be available for purchase through that time. Future exhibitions to be announced.  Born in Naples NY, 1990, to mother Lauren Sherwood, (Naples, NY), and father, Roberto Fals, (Popayán, Colombia), Alexander spent his 17th year as an exchange student living with his Grandfather, Dr. Jaime Fals Borda, in Colombia. At the same time, Alexander was studying Environmental Conservation at Finger Lakes Community College. Inspired by ecology, evolution and life of all forms, a love of creating has forever been his driving force. Leaving school in 2011, Fals answered the call of adventure and returned to Colombia to resurrect a lost art, the art of making paint and finding the mineral pigments that compose it. Fals collects all his own colors from ancient volcanic deposits, (exact location undisclosed). Based on a technique pioneered by his uncles, Henry and Billy Fals, he mixes it with water and clear adhesive. All paintings are done on high quality Lona Canvas.
