Who Am I?

I have always had reservations about calling myself an artist because I revere the title and hold it to a very high standard. I believe that many people have the ability to create art, but artist have the ability to change the world with their art; I find that to be a very powerful thing. My goal is to one day become an artist and use my art to reach people. Whether the change is great or small, a change in itself is massive in my eyes.
My art is a combination of multiple mediums. At its core, my art takes form of media, video to be specific is my passion. However, in conjunction with video I incorporate music that helps me audibly tell whatever story I am trying to tell visually. What I ultimately want to share with the world is the vision that I mentally see whenever I hear music. I want people to see as I have seen; I want them to feel as I have felt, to see and understand that everything is a connection. People and art, music and film, ultimately we are all one. My name is Steven Alexander and my world is my art. 

Below are some examples of the type of art that I have created or that I find inspiring:

(A music video that I created using the body movement of a fellow Lawrence student)

(My Pintrest account where I save images that I find inspiring, artful or interesting)

(A recent music video that embodies the type
of media I would love to be creating)

I look forward to meeting and working with all of you.

  1. I'm excited to see you're in the class too! I can't wait to see more of your work, I really enjoyed your body movement video. And I'm glad you hold artists to such a high standard, I'm instantly reminded of Beyoncé. ;)
