Paintings by Steven Alexander

I am immensely pleased to announce and celebrate the publication of MORMAÇO -- 120 collected poems of the great Brazilian poet Lêdo Ivo, with 42 of my paintings.

It is my deepest privilege to have known Lêdo, and to have had the opportunity to contribute to this project. My intent was to make a visual embodiment of the energy and spirit of the extraordinary man who welcomed me into his home and his extended family, in hope that these paintings might somehow touch upon the essence of his world.
