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, often highlighting the desire to escape reality through artificial means. Since beginning their collaboration, Alex and Aleia have shown work in Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo, Taipei, London and Chicago.
