The figurative art movement is a form of abstract art that retains ties to the real world, depicting real scenes and people in an abstract, yet recognisable manner. Jay Alders’ figurative paintings feature beach and coastal landscapes with human figures engaging in the beach life. Stories of romance, adrenalin and peaceful moments unfold in Alders’ art, bringing the beach into homes that may be far from the sea. His caricatures feature exaggerated limbs and movement that make his figures larger than life; it’s as though this is what their souls look like when they are engaged in these activities.
Jay Alders’ art has such a wide appeal that his designs have been used on clothing, CD covers, instruments and surfboards. If you’re interested in buying prints of Alders’ art online, you can do so through his online shop.
