Alexander Buzzalini (American, b. 1990) is a contemporary visual artist living and working in Hamtramck/Detroit, MI. Buzzalini primarily uses paint, pencil and crayon in knowingly childish drawings on canvas with heavily worked surfaces of delirious commitment. The end result is what he calls a “painted drawing.” His current conceptual focus is on the American mythology of the Wild West. Buzzalini received his degree from Wayne State University.
Buzzalini's sculptural works have been featured in numerous group exhibitions and performances, including Friends Of Friends at Wasserman Projects in the fall of 2017.
