Alexander was greatly influenced by his friendship with the famous Austrian painter Prof. Heinrich C. Berann who he met at the age of 16. Berann was to become his tutor and patron in later years.
Innumerable drawings of nature and excellent observational skills form the basis of his current artistic work (landscapes, portraits and also abstract topics).He likes to incorporate mythological and religious themes in figurative and abstract paintings and sculptures.
Multiple trips all over the world, especially 15 years of intensive travelling and working in Chile have also had a profound influence on his artistic work and furthermore earned him an international reputation as an outstanding painter of panoramic maps.
