Feature artist Brian Alfred was interviewed by in 2007. Currently, Brian Alfred is involved with an upcoming solo exhibit at Studio La Citta in Verona, Italy. The exhibit, titled Majic Window, will involve paintings, collages, an animation, and Custom View Masters. The exhibit will explore optical phenomena and the sublime landscape. Brian Alfred’s solo exhibit at Studio La Citta opens on March 28th.

Brian Alfred received his Masters of Fine Arts from Yale University in 1999. Since that time he has enjoyed solo exhibitions at the Mary Boone Gallery, Max Protetch Gallery, Sandroni Rey Gallery, SCAI the Bathhouse, and Haunch of Venison. Alfred's work has garnered many awards including a Joan Mitchell Foundation Award and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. His work is represented in many important collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among other prestigious collections.

According to Studio La Citta, Brian Alfred is known for working fluidly between painting, collages, digital drawing and animation. He has worked extensively collaborating with electronic musicians creating and designing catalogs for which these musicians created songs in relation to the artist's work. His animations have been shown in film festivals internationally. The collages are made from Color Aid paper cut with an X-acto blade. The artist works with collage paper to create "paper drawings". These collages are made in a similar fashion to the computer drawings and paintings. The small scale and tactile nature of the collaged paper give them a more intimate feel.

Brian Alfred will also have a solo exhibit at Haunch of Venison in New York this fall.
