Santiago Alcon possesses a unique treatment of light. Using perception and atmosphere, he shapes an unique interpretation of reality. There are key patterns that repeat throughout his work such as light, perception and a questionable connection between image and text.
Santiago Alcon was born in Spain. Since 2004 he has lived and worked in London.
Alcon’s painting is inspired by life and events in London. Different mark-making materials, text, colour and light combine to create a visual diary, capturing moments in time as images on glass, perspex and canvas.
