Alex is a painter living in the Scottish Borders. He shares a studio with his father painter Rob Hain at WASPS* in Selkirk. Being driven by his need to work, he paints seven days a week and finds the act of painting an essential part of his life, encapsulating his thoughts with his signature mark making. His influences range from Picasso, Joan Eardley and Jean Michel Basquiat, to William de Kooning.
