Alix Brignol. Haitian/American Born 1959.- Has been painting all of his life as far as he can remember. Living in New York city’s East Village in the 80’s thru 2005 and being around so many graffiti artist such as Basquiat, Scharf, Warhol Harring, Matthews he never thought of being a full time artist, he was enjoying life in the clubs and afterhours and being a musician! Still he painted and painted often...it was therapy as he puts it. He has gone from the 80’s initially as an art mover to gallery administrator on 57th Street in midtown Manhattan to a Christie’s auction house administrator to a well known artist assistant for over two decades to an art dealer and finally full time artist! Alix Brignol's career has taken him full circle to being a full time artist, distinct and vibrant from anything that one might see in the art world today and a must have to any collection!

I use many different mediums, such as oils, acrylics, gold leaf and silicone. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style.
I get inspired by documentaries, science and scientific programs, any photographs can have a particular effect on me and motivate me to create something totally different! My pieces are directly influenced by these things and nature. I particularly love skulls in my work! We all have one…while some tend to associate those works with death they are not.They are a celebration of life!
