about the artist
My name is Alex Slydel. I use they/them pronouns.
I was born in Florida in 1994 but grew up in central North Carolina. I received my MFA in Applied Craft and Design from the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, OR in 2021 and my BFA in Sculpture from the University of North Carolina at Asheville in Asheville, NC in 2018.
I am a white, queer, nonbinary trans person who lives with several mental illnesses. These parts of my identity inform my work constantly.
Some of my current artistic influences include Nicki Green, Maya Vivas, and Vaginal Davis.
