As a pop-surrealist artist, freelance illustrator, toy designer and transmedia pioneer, ALEX PARDEE creates brightly colored nightmares, or as he calls them, Brightmares. His neon-colored work—often blending cute with horrific—is iconic, and has been featured multiple times in both JUXTAPOZ and HI-FRUCTOSE magazines. In addition to his personal paintings, digital crypto art, storytelling and character developments, Alex has helped designed film projects like Zack Snyder’s "Sucker Punch". His illustrations have graced album covers (The Used, Aesop Rock) and video games (The End Is Nigh, The Binding Of Isaac), while his solo art gallery shows have been adapted into horror films (Digging Up The Marrow) and fantasy television projects (Chadam).
Alex is currently creating as many Brightmares as he can in Los Angeles, CA.
"Alex Pardee has turned emotional escape into aggressive exploration, and he has done this through the use of biomorphic and anthropomorphic expression. The horse his mind rides is a hot rubber unicorn, but he'll get back to the world before it melts."
