The London born artist Alexander Arundell, who studied at the Chelsea School of Art currently lives in Munich as a professional painter and printmaker.
Already as a student he developed his interest in the various printmaking techniques using botanical themes as subject matter. The intricate detail of his botanical graphic work complemented his large format floral paintings. Today Alexander Arundell specializes almost entirely in the seldom found and time consuming mezzotinto engraving technique. Mezzotintos are characterised by their soft edges and soft changing tones which can turn hard scenes into dream like worlds. He depicts ordered structures as well as the chaos in the disordered with an interest for dramatic perspectives and a feeling for depth, space and light with examples also in his recent prints on urban architecture.
