Matt Alexander


As an artist, I like to use various traditional media and techniques to create colorful, semi-realistic pieces that portray the world around me.

This summer I partnered with the Alexander Lab to create cover art for an upcoming paper. Their research has found that there is a recruitment of inflammatory regulatory T cells to the skin of hypertensive mice, which results in a loss of micro-blood vessels from the area.

Artist Statement: 

In this piece I used pen and colored pencil to create a pointillism depiction of micro vessels. These dissolve into nothing after passing through a layer of inflammatory regulatory T cells, the representation of which I took from a figure on a research poster.
