Carmichael Gallery of Contemporary Art opens a showcase of new work by Paris-based artist Alëxone on Thursday, May 7. The new series of acrylic, ink and mixed media works on paper will be on display through Thursday, May 28, 2009.

Born in 1976, Alëxone lives and works in Paris. With a background in graffiti, he rose to fame in the early 90s with striking letter-based tags of the moniker Oedipus on the streets of Paris. He became Alëxone in 2000, when his artwork took a figurative turn.  Since then, his distinctive work has won him a reputation far beyond France with exhibitions all over Europe, including Paris, Hamburg, Milan, Berlin, London, Amsterdam and Brussels.

Charmichael Gallery of Contemporary Art is located at 1257 La Brea Ave, West Hollywood, CA.
