From an early age, Kenneth Wayne Alexander II has utilized art as a means of escape. At the age of four, he discovered his initial drawing style and began constructing various structures within his home to use as props for his sketches. While residing in Memphis, Tennessee, Kenneth honed his skills through traditional art classes and was introduced to renowned artists such as Rembrandt and Picasso. He drew inspiration from these artists and applied what he learned to his own style. Salvador Dali was particularly influential to Kenneth during his formative years. According to Kenneth, "I saw how he (Salvador Dali) would break from reality while still retaining the human and relative meaning of the environment." This philosophy is evident in Kenneth's work and has had a profound impact on his artistic style.

Now focused on creating digital art, Kenneth Alexander is recognized for his captivating multi-level collages accompanied by audio that he produces himself. Kenneth's pieces are deeply rooted in his upbringing and highlight the philosophies that have influenced him throughout his life. Kenneth first gained the spotlight in the digital art world during Miami Art Week 2022. This year, he is set to return to Miami Art Week 2023 showcasing his latest work, courtesy of Blackdove. The upcoming exhibitions will be an exciting opportunity for collectors to experience the digital masterpieces of Kenneth Alexander along with many other emerging digital artists.

Notable Pieces and Collections

Possess highlights three key pieces from the portfolio of Kenneth Wayne Alexander II followed by a direct artist description of the pieces and links to view and acquire them on Blackdove.

Black Sovereign


Artist's Description:

This piece is a testament to where I came from. I grew up Christian, I was super into church. I was an usher for four years and I was a president of the usher board. It taught me a lot about community and togetherness and the understanding that there's always a higher being in this life and that it's a good thing. I think God exists in the form of love because it's the most universal thing that we have. Aside from this, I felt stagnant, I wasn't growing as the man that I wanted to be, I wanted to understand who I was by my own mistakes in my own life and how I resonated with those mistakes. This spurred me on my path of understanding what love is by my own definitions. - Kenneth Wayne Alexander II

The Tower of Babel


Artists Description

This is a concept about the overstimulation that has become a normal part of our society. There is so much technology happening at once, we often forget to reconcile within nature and that over-simulation interrupts how our brains function. I am showing it in a visual representation, this is what it looks like to me. It speaks on the progression and regression of society. Our intentional actions show if we will progress forward with the new ways of life, or let it sink us back. - Kenneth Wayne Alexander II

The Roar II


Artists Description

This is a piece that I created when I was going through a low and very depressing time in my life, not wanting to create anything. The greatest light I could think of was being as loud as possible, and roaring loud, like a lion. The presence of water is a really big element in most of my works because it represents the continuance and flow of life, something that helped me get through the times that I was in. - Kenneth Wayne Alexander II
