Alex Marmarellis was born in Cape Town in 1976. He studied Graphic Design, fine art and sculpture at The National School of the Arts in Johannesburg and graphic design and art direction at AAA School of advertising in Cape Town.
Whilst he has worked in a wide range of professions - from carpentry to furniture design and marketing - Alex returned to his love of art in 2010 when he started to paint again.
With a passion for photography, Marmarellis produces work from his own reference material as he carries his camera with him at all times, on the lookout for fresh inspiration. The artist's pieces are a narrative of his environment and the people in his life; his Camp's Bay Beach paintings capturing one of Cape Town's best loved spots.
He currently resides in Cape Town, is married, and has two beautiful daughters.
