Alex & Aleia
Alex Wallbaum and Aleia Murawski are collaborators based out of Chicago. They are both graduates from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign where they each studied Art and Design (Aleia in Painting and Alex in Photography). Alex + Aleia focus on still life studio and location-based photography, but also work in video and sculpture. Their still life images are composed of everyday found objects and situations; both familiar and surreal. Since beginning their collaboration, Alex and Aleia have shown work in Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo, Taipei, London and Chicago.
