Classically trained artist painting representational portraits and narrative works
Alex Russell Flint is a British artist specialising in beautifully crafted representational portraits and narrative works in oil and charcoal. He was trained for many years by the renowned teacher Ted Jacobs at Ecole Albert Defois, Jacob's atelier in the Loire Valley.
Often set within and around his home, 'l'Ancienne École' (a beautiful old schoolhouse in central France) his timeless paintings of strong, alluring females, placed in intriguing situations or simply posed portraits, strike a pleasing balance between the classical and the contemporary.
Alex is the great-grandson of the artist Sir William Russell Flint and divides his time between studios in London and France.
