Alex Nodopaka Alternate Reality Abstract Art


“I am a multifaceted artist who practiced traditional photography, painting, drawing & sculpture until the advent of the PC. Subsequently my art evolved into pure computer graphics. My present theme starts with my sculpture and photography that I subsequently metamorphose into graphics that deal with the transformation of figurative images into variants of Surrealism and Cubism named Alternate Reality..”
