Alex Donis is a LA-based artist whose work examines the boundaries set within religion, politics, race, and sexuality. His work is influenced by a tri-cultural (Pop, Latin & Queer) experience. He has worked extensively in a variety of media including painting, installation, video, and photography. His work has been at the heart of several controversial incidents that have stirred national debates regarding censorship in the arts. nIn a series of mixed media Chromogenic prints, Donis uses small hand-painted colored dots to mimic the grain found in color prints, making reference to the "Dream Time" paintings of Central Australian Aboriginal tribes. The images are of the memory of sexual encounters. These unique prints are part of a broad body of work called "Searching for Gomorrah". In his most current work Donis photographs young male high school athletes, cutting into a variety of photographic media to form decorative patterns in a series called "MAGENTA JOCKS".
