About

 

Alex Russell Flint (b.1974) is a British artist specialising in beautifully crafted representational portraits and narrative works in oil and charcoal. 

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.

Along with solo, joint and group shows in London, Ireland and the United States, and countless commissions, his artwork has been used for the front cover of Donna Tartt's 'Secret History' and his French home and studio featured in various interior design publications including Condé Nast's 'World of Interiors' and Annie Sloan's 'Recipes for style and colour'

Alex is the great-grandson of the artist Sir William Russell Flint and divides his time between studios in London and France.
