Alex Valentine is an artist, publisher, and designer. His recent work employs commercial print technologies and cyber graphic mark-making to create visualizations of the interaction between humans and touch interfaces. With special attention to color and pattern-rhythms, Valentine layers and excerpts sections of his own limited edition prints, to index and reflect upon formal image production. He is a co-founder with Aay Preston-Myint of No Coast Editions, a publisher of artist's editions and books. Valentine has presented his printed work nationally in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Minneapolis, and internationally in Den Haag, Tokyo, and London. He teaches in both the Printmedia and Visual Communications Departments at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
