Alex Tzavaras always works from life as painting a portrait involves a real interaction between himself and the sitter. During this process Alex finds the more objective he can be, suspending any judgement to focus on purely visual phenomena, the better he is at capturing the key expressions and mannerisms that reveal  their character.

A consultation is required before starting a portrait as Alex will often use preliminary sketches to help decide the pose and composition. Most of Alex’s work is completed in his North lit studio in South London, he can also travel if needed.
