piacsek copy 3.jpg

I’m Alexandre Piacsek, artist based in London. I work in multiple artistic mediums, from acrylic painting to ink drawings, marker pens, digital, mixed-media. I’m currently finishing 2 graphic novels, contributing with illustration magazines and also organising group shows in London. Every artwork you see here is for sale, but not the paintings yet. If you love arts and like my work, or are a collector and want to support a fine emergent artist as me you can check my online shop where you will find fine art prints and limited editions. If you’re here just browsing-no worries, you can drop me a line or add me on Instagram!
