Alexander’s exposure to Eastern European culture and American culture, as a young boy, helped him broaden his horizon as an artist.

His exposure to art form both continents helped define the route he would later take from muralist to fine art artist.
He lived near Melrose Ave and Fairfax and was deeply influenced by the murals that ran across the alleys.
